Dallas officer enters apartment thinking it’s her own fatally shoots man inside

Hall said investigators obtained a blood sample from the Officer to determine if she had been using drugs or alcohol.

The officer, a five-year veteran on the force, had completed a 12-hour shift and was off-duty when she entered the South Side Flats apartment complex at about 10 p.m. local time.

Dallas authorities say the uniformed officer was "confronted" by Jean, pulled her gun on him and fired.

Fellow officers were called to the scene where they administered first aid to the 26-year-old victim.

Throughout the peaceful gathering, between memories of Jean shared by parishioners from Dallas West Church of Christ, where Jean was a youth group leader, activists called for the arrest of the officer who shot him.

The officer, who has not been identified, returned home in her uniform before reporting that she had shot a man.

The officer phoned police in Dallas, Texas, US, to say she had shot the man on Thursday night.

Jean was a native of Saint Lucia who graduated from Harding University in Arkansas.

"We hope to bring understanding to the family", she said.

He was also the nephew of Mr Ignatius Jean, Chief Executive Officer of the Caribbean Water and Sewerage Association Inc.

Nathan Monan, a friend from Harding University, said Botham Jean was kind to everybody and would often lead people in song during chapel at the private university in Arkansas. Meanwhile, the officer has been placed on leave, according to a news release by the Dallas Police Department.

A YouTube video posted in 2014 shows Jean making his pitch to become the university's student association president. Jean was then transported to a hospital, where he was pronounced.

"How can this nasty world take you away from me", Earl wrote.

Allie Jean reacted with shock and dismay when she heard the news of her son's violent death inside his own apartment. He was listed on LinkedIn as a risk assurance experienced associate.

But it was not the right apartment and the officer ran into a man who she didn't recognize.

"This is a bad tragedy", the company said in a statement".

"I've spoken with the family expressed my condolences and reassured them that we are working diligently and that we have invited an outside agency to investigate", said DPD Chief Reneé Hall.
