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.
