Dallas police officer arrested in shooting death

The Texas Rangers will take the appropriate time to review the vast amount of evidence and information secured by Dallas Police Department investigators.

According to police, Ms Guyger shot and killed Jean after returning in-uniform to the South Side Flats, where they both had apartments, following her shift.

Amber Rene Guyger had not been subjected to arrest until the Sunday announcement from the Rangers that she was in custody and being accused of manslaughter.

Jean, 26, was shot Thursday night in his unit in an apartment building near downtown Dallas. Police have released few other details.

Merritt had previously claimed that Guyger, a four-year veteran, wasn't being eyed for manslaughter charges because of her status as a cop. "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".

"The Texas Rangers are now in charge", Rawlings said at a press conference. Dallas West Church was filled with hundreds of Jean's friends, family and coworkers.

Mr Jean wasn't the first person shot by Ms Guyger.


The shooting sparked major outrage on social media and widespread calls for Guyger's arrest. The officer's apartment was directly below Jean's, he said. Guyger fired only one round, striking and wounding the suspect, according to a report on the Dallas Police Department's website.

An attorney for the family of a man fatally shot by an off-duty Dallas police officer says an arrest warrant should be issued for the officer. Guyger has been placed on paid administrative leave.

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. "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. "Botham Jean was a member of the PwC family in our Dallas office and we are simply heartbroken to hear of his death", the company said in a statement obtained by ABC News on Friday. "The very Bible says to render to Caeser that which is Caeser so if Ceaser says to pay a penalty for a life, then she has to pay".

"We demanded for Officer Amber Guyger to be arrested and it happened", Jean family attorney Lee Merrit told ABC News Sunday night. She said she then heard what sounded like "running steps" and a female voice calling the police. "Not only has he lost his life, but we've lost a potential leader for this city for decades to come".

In the 2017 confrontation, the affidavit says Guyger was one of two officers called to help another officer.

"This world isn't fair and it's full of trouble", Genery said.

Along with prayers and tributes, the vigil featured boisterous congregational singing of hymns including "Just a Little Talk with Jesus", "When We All Get to Heaven" and - at the request of Allison Jean - "O I Want to See Him". His uncle Ignatius Jean said the slaying left relatives devastated and looking for answers.

"You want to think it's fiction", he said.
