Authorities: Texas officer arrested for manslaughter

Authorities: Texas officer arrested for manslaughter

But Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings said Saturday that he supported Chief Hall and her decision to bring in state investigators.

Chief Hall said in the interest of being as transparent as possible, she has invited the Texas Rangers to take over the investigation. Also, Guyger was not one of the people with Jean in a picture that has been circulating on social media, sources said.

Dallas police in a statement said that preliminary information suggests the officer involved called 911, and told responding officers that "she entered the victim's apartment believing that it was her own".

Amber Guyger, the Dallas police officer who authorities say shot and killed a well-liked businessman at his apartment, has been arrested by the Texas Rangers and is now accused of manslaughter.

Dallas Police said Guyger returned to what she thought was her apartment at the South Side Flats after work Thursday night, but had mistakenly entered the apartment of Botham Shem Jean. Her apartment was not on the same floor as Jean's.

Kaufman County Jail online records show that Guyger is in custody there. "Botham Jean was a member of the PwC family in our Dallas office, and we are simply heartbroken to hear of his death".

Police confirmed at least one death but local media reports five have been killed - and the death toll is expected to rise. Traffic from various parts of South 24 Parganas and Behala were also diverted from the Diamond Park area, an officer said.

Allison Jean, the mother of 26-year-old St Lucian national Botham Jean, wondered whether race was a factor in the killing.

Guyger was arrested three days after the incident after the Texas Rangers chose to postpone pursuing a warrant "until they could follow up on information that they received from the interview with the officer". "However, as we continued the investigation it became clear that we were dealing with what appears to be much of a very unique situation", Hall said.

Guyger, who was still in uniform, put her key in the door, which was unlocked, and the door opened, the official said.

The shooting has raised questions about whether Guyger, who is white, used deadly force against Jean, a naturalized US citizen from the Caribbean island of St. Lucia, because he's black.

"I didn't know she was white until now".

Right now there are more questions than answers. Such questions are being raised by Jean's family and attorney.

Their mother, Allison, a former Permanent Secretary of the Department of Education, Innovation and Gender Relations for St. Lucia, was traveling to Dallas on Friday.

Botham Jean served as a regular song leader and taught a Wednesday night class for young adults, minister and elder Sammie Berry said.

Friends and family gathered at a vigil at Jean's church, the Dallas West Church of Christ on Saturday, CNN affiliate CBS 11 reported. Officer Guyger ran into a man who she didn't recognize and ended up shooting him.

Further details surrounding the death of Botham Shem Jean, a 26-year-old native of the Caribbean island of St. Lucia, were not immediately provided.

"I believe in prayer and think God can heal", Tease said in welcoming the crowd, which included a sizable contingent of Harding alumni as well as many of Botham Jean's colleagues from PricewaterhouseCoopers, where the 2016 accounting graduate worked.
