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.

"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.
