Manslaughter Warrant Issued for Officer Who Killed Botham Jean

Dallas Police say a manslaughter warrant is coming for an Officer involved in a fatal shooting Thursday night.

On Thursday evening, September 6, a Dallas police officer was going home after her shift, when she walked into the wrong apartment and shot the man inside.

Authorities haven't released the identity of the officer, who allegedly entered the wrong apartment in her building around 10 p.m. She walked into an apartment, mistaking it for her own, and found a man inside.

The Dallas County Medical Examiners Office said the man killed was Botham Shem Jean, and that an autopsy was being performed on Friday morning.

The man was later pronounced dead in hospital.

Fullinwider, 66, who has been an activist in Dallas for decades, said he hopes Oliver's conviction signals that Americans want to stop letting officers who kill civilians get away with murder.

The officer has not been arrested but has been placed on administrative leave during the police investigation, according to the authorities.


It's not clear whether the officer is in custody, though Hall said she didn't know the officer's whereabouts.

Jean had graduated from a private Christian college in Arkansas in 2016 and had since been working at the accounting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers in Dallas.

He said CGID intends to write US Senators and Members of Congress from NY to push for a national review and reform of protocols on how and when law enforcement officers engage in the use of force.

"We are here to express our outrage, and we are here to demand accountability", said Imam Omar Suleiman, an activist at the event organized by the Dallas-based Mothers Against Police Brutality group.

The officer's blood was drawn to be tested for drugs and alcohol.

Allisa Charles-Findley shared her grief online at the passing of her "baby brother", saying she was just thinking about what to buy him for his 27th birthday later this month. "We still have a lot to do in this investigation".

She says she spoke with Jean's sister to officer condolences to the family. "As hours turn to days, as days turn to weeks, as weeks turn to months, sometimes you go back to the status quo to live in our lives as usual, and we never really push open the doors of justice in this nation". But I need to look into her eyes and ask her why did she do that to my son. "I love you with all of my heart".
