Investigators to look at security footage to track Dallas officer night she killed black neighbor

Dallas Police Officer Amber Guyger, who shot and killed 26-year-old Botham Jean in his apartment earlier this month, has been fired after an internal investigation found she "engaged in adverse conduct".

What is clear is that Guyger turned herself in to the authorities almost three days after she killed Jean. An internal affairs investigation found she "engaged in adverse conduct when she was arrested for manslaughter" and she was sacked due to her "actions" the night of the fatal shooting. As the recent statement indicates, Guyger is still in a position to appeal Hall's decision and is free look for work at another police department while she is out on bail.

Guyger had worked for the Dallas Police Department since November 2013.

Dallas County District Attorney Faith Johnson said a grand jury will decide the ultimate charge against Guyger and that she has not ruled out pursuing a murder indictment.

Botham Jean was scheduled to be laid to rest in his native St. Lucia on Monday.

Guyger claims she mistakenly walked into Jean's apartment thinking it was her own on the night of September 6, when she was approached by Jean and fatally shot him.

She told investigators that she had just ended a shift when she returned in uniform to the South Side Flats apartment complex.

"I think it sends a strong message out to the community that the Dallas Police Department now has taken steps in the right direction with making that decision to fire this officer", said Daryl Washington, an attorney for Jean's family. She reportedly said the door was slightly ajar when she placed the key with an electronic chip into the keyhole, causing the door to open further. She described seeing a large silhouette and, believing there was an intruder in her apartment, drew her firearm. Guyger was placed on administrative leave immediately after the shooting, but such discipline was not adequate when weighed with her actions, critics said.

Guyger, a four-year veteran, then entered the apartment, called 911 and started administering first aid to Jean. Jean later died at a hospital after being shot once in the torso.

After the shooting, Guyger's blood was drawn to be tested for alcohol and drugs, according to Hall.
