Dallas Officer in Botham's Killing Named

Why There’s Still No Warrant Out for Dallas Cop Who Killed Man in His Apartment Police Chief Hall, Mayor Provide Update on Shooting Death of Botham Shem Jean

The news of Guyger's arrest broke on the evening of September 9, 2018 after two days of confusion about whether Guyger, 30, would face charges in the freakish shooting death of Botham Shem Jean, a Saint Lucian man who moved to America to attend a Christian college and later got a job in risk assessment for a prominent company in Dallas.

The following is an update to the fatal shooting that occurred on Thursday evening at the South Side Flats, 1210 S. Lamar Street.

The Dallas PD was reportedly about to charge Guyger with manslaughter for another incident prior to her killing Jean. "We understand the concerns of this community and that is why we are working as vigorously and as meticulously as we can to ensure the integrity of this case".

Jean's family has also hired attorney Benjamin Crump, who is best known for representing the families of Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown.

Guyger also shot another man a year ago, according to court documents. Ms Guyger is white.

The department said in a news release Sunday night that Officer Amber Guyger was booked into the Kaufman County Jail and that the investigation is ongoing.

An attorney for Jean's family has insisted that the officer be charged and treated like any other member of society.

On the Thursday night shooting, Guyger is on administrative leave pending criminal and administrative investigations.

Dallace police were in the process of issuing a warrant for the officer's arrest on Friday. At some point, the officer fired her weapon striking the victim. "Based on that interview, they asked us to hold off on the warrant until they had an opportunity to investigate some of the information that was provided during that interview", Hall said. "Botham wanted all of us to unite", his mother, Allison Jean, said at a vigil. "She has to face whatever the law says".

Chief Hall said she has been in contact with Jean's family and offered her condolences.

"Super scary because the police are supposed to protect you and then they come home and you're just hanging out in your own house and then they come home thinking they're home or whatever", he said.

Jean, 26, was a graduate of Harding University who worked at PricewaterhouseCoopers in Dallas.

"We want to make sure everything is transparent and above board", the mayor added, after praising Jean for being a church-going, young professional who is "exactly the sort of citizen we want to have in this city". Also, the officer was not one of the people with Jean in a picture that has been circulating on social media, sources said.

"This world has lost a light in the dark", Ray said of his colleague's death.

His uncle, Ignatius Jean, said the entire family was shocked when they heard the news of Jean's death.

"You want to think it's fiction ... and you have to grapple with the reality", he said.

"This is the worst call any mother can get", his mother, Allison Jean, told WFAA-TV.

A racially-mixed crowd gathered near the crime scene for a candlelight vigil late on Friday to honour the victim, identified as Botham Shem Jean, 26, an immigrant from the Caribbean island nation of Saint Lucia.

"We know there have been calls for peace, but peace does not come without justice", Mokuria said.
