Manslaughter vs. murder: Explaining the charge Dallas cop Amber Guyger faces

The police chief has said she had made the decision on Friday to seek a warrant for manslaughter on Guyger based on the evidence she had gathered.

Amber Guyger, 30, was booked on Sunday night in the Kaufman County Jail.

Guyger had completed a shift late and was still in uniform when she returned to what she believed was her home and encountered 26-year-old Botham Shem Jean, Dallas police chief U. Renee Hall said at a news conference.

The officer, who the police are yet to identify, has been placed on leave pending official charges and will face criminal charges for the fatal shooting, officials said on Friday.

The mother of a black Caribbean man who was fatally shot by a white Dallas police officer who said she mistook his apartment for her own wonders whether her son's race was a factor in his killing.

The Dallas Police chief announced Saturday morning that the warrant for the off-duty officer who shot and killed a man when she says she mistook his apartment for her own, is on hold, after a request by lead investigators, the Texas Rangers.

A Dallas police officer has been charged with manslaughter after she shot and killed her 26-year-old neighbor in an apartment she thought was hers. She told the responding officers that she came into the victim's apartment thinking it was hers. She acknowledged that many questions remain about the shooting and asked the public to give investigators enough time to get to the answers. His mother, Allison Jean, worked as an official for the Saint Lucian government for several years and now resides in the United States, according to Rawlings.

Jean was taken to the hospital and died. The officer is white, and Jean was black.

"We're still dealing in America with black people being killed in the most arbitrary ways, driving while black, walking while black, and now we have to add living while black", co-counsel Benjamin Crump said.

The Majerhat bridge in the crowded Alipore area had caved in around 4.45 pm on Tuesday. "There should be a proper probe". He said they had no idea of the casualties had seen there were motor cycles and other vehicles trapped in the debris.

The Dallas Police Department is conducting a joint investigation with the District Attorney's Office. At a press conference later Saturday, he said he believed the officer's name had been officially released.

Two women who live on the second floor near where the shooting happened said they heard a lot of noise late Thursday.

"We have a lot of questions that are unanswered", Hall said.

"It's like a big chunk of the church's heart has been ripped out", she said.

The apartment doors at the complex are all similar, Kinsey said, but Jean's doorstep had a bright red mat. Rawlings said he and West met with Jean's mother, sister, and brother-in-law Friday night, meeting them at the airport and driving them to their hotel.

In 2016, Jean graduated with a Bachelor of Business Administration degree from Harding University in Searcy, Arkansas, where he majored in accounting and management information systems, according to a statement from the school. "Would she have reacted differently?" Guyger was involved in another shooting incident in May 2017, when a suspect took her taser, according to a Dallas Police Department press release.

"This world has lost a light in the dark", said one of Jean's coworkers from PricewaterhouseCoopers.

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