Off-duty Dallas officer shoots kills man after entering wrong apartment

"Preliminary information suggests that the officer arrived home in full uniform after working a full shift", the report continued. The complex is near the department's headquarters on Lamar Avenue. The officer, a five-year veteran who has not yet been publicly identified, has been placed on administrative leave, authorities said.

Hall said she hopes the investigation can bring clarity to the family. Responding officers administered first aid to the victim, but he died at a local hospital.

"My heart goes with you my boy. never thought this day would come, wanted to be there for you always my boy. how can this nasty world take you away from me. this is the worst day of my life thus far. uncle loves you so much. there goes Mr. Botham Shem Jean".

People who live nearby said they got a notification about the shooting on the app Nextdoor. "Open up!'" another neighbour, Caitlin Simpson said. "Because of the subject, there was a particular old hymn that I asked him if he would mind leading", McLarty said. "I don't know if she was exhausted, but that's pretty scary".

"He did no one any wrong", his mother, Allie Jean, said in a phone interview from her home in St. Lucia, adding that the family is stunned to hear about his death, according to the NBC News report. A blood sample was drawn to test the officer for drugs or alcohol.

"We still have a lot to do in this investigation", Mitchell said, as quoted by NBC News. "Therefore, we have ceased handling it under our normal officer-involved shooting protocol".

The officer who shot Jean was the one who reported the shooting. According to Chief Hall, it's unclear what the interaction was between the officer and Jean.

There are still a lot of questions about the events leading up to the shooting. The patrol officer, described as a female Caucasian, has not been identified, but her name will be released when she is formally charged, Hall told reporters. According to a woman who lives in the same apartment building, the doors open by way of electronic key fobs, with each door having its own unique fob.

Chief Hall asked the community and the media for patience and cooperation.

Pastor Bryan Carter from Concord Church attended the news conference.

"At my request we are in the process of obtaining a warrant based on the circumstances that we have right now", Hall said. PricewaterhouseCoopers spokeswoman Megan DiSciullo told Reuters that Jean had worked in the company's Dallas office for two years.

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

The Christian Chronicle reports that he is being remembered for his attractive singing voice - he often led songs during services - and the depth of his faith.
