Dallas Cop Faces Manslaughter Charge after Entering Wrong Apartment, Killing Man

Dallas Police Chief Renee Hall said the cop who shot and killed a man after entering his apartment thinking it was her own will be charged with manslaughter.

But Hall has not yet received the officer's name, only stating that she was a “caucasian female.”

Hall, who took over the department last year as the first female police chief, also said they took blood samples from the officer to determine if she was under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

She also said she handed over the investigation to the Texas Rangers to prevent a conflict of interest.

Police say they found the officer's key in the door of the victim's apartment, so perhaps he opened the door when hearing somebody trying to get in, only to be shot and killed.

The victim was Botham Shem Jean, a 26-year-old man from St. Lucia in the Caribbean.

Fresh off her shift, a Dallas police officer was in full uniform when she entered an apartment in a gated community, apparently thinking it was her apartment.

When she spotted the man who lived in the apartment, she shot and killed him, apparently thinking it was an intruder.

But the intruder turned out to be her.

According to NBC News:

> Dallas police in a statement said that preliminary information suggests the officer involved called for help, and told responding officers that “she entered the victim's apartment believing that it was her own.”

> The incident began just before 10 p.m. CT (11 p.m. ET) at the South Side Flats, an upscale apartment complex directly south of Dallas' downtown.

> During the encounter, the officer was in full uniform and “fired her weapon striking the victim,” police said.

> Jean was taken to the hospital and died. The Dallas County Medical Examiner later released his identity.

The victim was Botham Shem Jean, a 26-year-old native of St. Lucia, an island in the Caribbean, who was known as “Bo,” according to his mother who was interviewed by NBC News.

> Allie Jean said she would speak with her son daily, usually before 10 p.m., but thought he might be out after she didn't hear from him.

> She remembered her son, who was nicknamed Bo, as a top student in St. Lucia who loved serving as a song leader in church. She said he graduated from Harding University in Arkansas in 2016, and then remained in the U.S. after getting an internship at PricewaterhouseCoopers in Dallas, where he worked in the risk assurance department.

> “We were very, very close,” Allie Jean said. “We would talk about everything, about politics. Botham loved everyone, and everyone loved him.”

One of Jean's family members told St. Lucia media that they believe the cop was drunk because she lived on another floor.

Dallas police told them that her key was found in the door, so perhaps Jean opened the door when hearing her trying to enter his apartment.

Dallas police have not released the name of the officer who killed Botham.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
