US Police Officer has been Charged for Brutal Killing in a Wrong Apartment

A police officer of Dallas informed the authority about her discovery of an intruder in the darkness inside her apartment. When the prosecutor brings a formal charge of killing against Amber Guyger, she stated in the affidavit untied by the police, why she had to fire the service weapon on Botham Shem Jean.

 

Amber Guyger of 30 explained in current statement to Texas Ranger David Armstrong , that when he reached her downtown apartment of Dallas, the door of the apartment was already slightly opened  and she saw inside a large shadow of a figure, then she unsheathed her hand service gun and try to expel him giving a verbal threatening which was desperately ignored by the intruder Jean of 26.  At that moment, Guyger fired on Jean from the front and later Jean died of the severe injury.

 

Guyger claimed in her statement to the investigators that after putting on the light she gives an alert to Jean for coming out and called 911. The affidavit said, “ Upon being asked where she was located by emergency dispatchers, Guyger returned to the front door to observe the address and discovered she was at the wrong apartment.”

 

A video which was captured from outside of the building shows that the officer is busy on phone, marching forward and back at the outside of the apartment and weeping. Later, the medical team were seen carrying a man lying on a wheeled stretcher along with the conduction of cardiopulmonary resuscitation on the man. On a Sunday evening, Guyger had to surrender willingly at the Kaufman County Sheriff’s Department to control the intensified agitation demanding her arrest and to stop condemnation against police force accusing the department that they were showing special treatment for their own worker.

 

The case of the death of the intruder has become a reassembling of the advocates against the police violence.

Even after the arrest, the mother of Botham Shem Jean, Allison Jean claimed some questions and doubts are still unanswered. Allison Jean told in her statement to the reporters, “ I have asked too many questions, and I have been told that there are no answers yet. I am looking forward to the powers that be to come up with the answers to make me more satisfied that they are doing what is in the best interest of getting justice for Botham.”

Police officials remained quiet about the happenings inside the apartment and also about the actual mental condition of Guyger. Everyone has one question in their mind that in which condition the accused police officer wrongly thought that Jean’s apartment is her and why a trained police cop had to use the deadly force so quickly.

Renee Hall, the chief of the Dallas police informed that their team was issuing an arrest warrant but it was paused by the Texas Ranger Division, a different agency who took over the case of Jean’s killing and plead for further time to investigate in detail.
