When the officer thought he saw the woman in a vehicle with two men in the 8300 block of Reva Street, the officer asked for backup from Guyger and another officer, according to an affidavit.

Brandt, 17, gave his father the phone and left the room.

The apartment doors at the complex are all similar, Kinsey said, but Jean's doorstep had a bright red mat. "I think that's what the family would say". "He was really inspiring. He was real. He was down to earth". The department had requested a warrant on Friday.

But she questioned how the situation could have escalated to her son's shooting.

Brandt and his father Bertram said they will go Saturday. "But that just let me know they have very strong faith". "We will miss our boy".

Harding University President Bruce McLarty shared fond memories of him after learning of his death.

At the very early stages of this investigation - initial indications were that they were what we consider circumstances of an officer involved shooting.

"This is a awful tragedy".

At the time of his death, Jean was working for PricewaterhouseCoopers, a multinational professional services firm with an office in Dallas.

Meanwhile, Jean's family held a vigil for him Saturday at Dallas West Church of Christ, FOX 4 reported.

"Botham loved mankind", Jean's mother, Allison Jean said to those gathered.

Jean's mother shared stories with the mayor about her late son, "how he loved everybody", "how much he loved Dallas", "didn't really see color" and "always had a smile on his face", according to Rawlings. "Botham wanted all of us to unite". Also, the officer was not one of the people with Jean in a picture that has been circulating on social media, sources said.

Police in Texas have identified the officer accused of fatally shooting a man after entering his apartment, allegedly mistakenly believing it to have been her own.

The officer was named on Saturday as Amber Guyer, who had worked for Dallas Police Department for four years on the Southeast Patrol Division.

Guyger was involved in another shooting incident in May 2017, when a suspect took her taser, according to a Dallas Police Department press release. However, the Texas Department of Public Safety Texas Rangers are ensuring that "transparency" is maintained throughout the investigation, Dallas Police Chief Renee Hall said. The statement also indicated, "They made the decision to postpone pursuing a warrant until they could follow up on information that they received from the interview with the officer".

Right now there are more questions than answers.

Attorney Lee Merritt, who is representing Jean's family, also said that Jean did not know the officer, according to family members. At some point she opened fire.

The incident took place at the South Side Flats in Dallas on Thursday night.

Jean was an accountant at PricewaterhouseCoopers in Dallas, an global company that does assurance, tax and advisory work for firms around the world. We understand the concerns of the community.
