Dallas police said Friday they are seeking a warrant for manslaughter against one of their own after an off-duty officer entered the wrong apartment in her building and killed a man who was inside.

Guyger, 30, of Dallas, was charged with manslaughter, according to jail records.

"A female Dallas police officer returned to what she believed to be her apartment after her shift ended - she was still in uniform when she encountered Mr. Jean inside the apartment", Hall said Thursday.

When the Rangers arrived, the investigation was turned over to them and 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.

Dallace police were in the process of issuing a warrant for the officer's arrest on Friday.

Guyger is now on administrative leave and has yet to be arrested for killing 26-year-old Botham Shem Jean, who was described by loved ones as warm, cheerful and loved to sing. The Texas Department of Public Safety said in a news release that Guyger was booked into the Kaufman County Jail and that the investigation is ongoing.

"Texas Rangers released her moments ago".

Merritt said Jean and the officer did not know each other. "That includes holding Amber Guyger accountable for her crimes as well as ID'ing all responsible for enabling this incident".

This is a developing story and will be updated.

Jean was once asked to lead a college chapel service with an hymn that was unfamiliar to him, Harding University President Bruce McLarty recalled in a statement Friday. He described Jean as an "amazing individual" and said that "if the grand jury deems necessary, this officer should have to answer for her actions in a court of law in Dallas County". Guyger shot and injured the suspect, according to the department's statement.

Chief U. Renee Hall said Saturday during a panel discussion livestreamed on Facebook by television station WFAA that the state investigators said they needed more time to investigate the Thursday night fatal shooting of 26-year-old Botham Jean. "Allow us to get to the bottom of those answers that we could give to you, and then let's have a discussion". "Then at some point, she fired her weapon striking the victim", Hall 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.

"Somebody has to be insane not to realize that they walked into the wrong apartment", Allie Jean said.

"This is a bad tragedy".

Jean's family has also hired attorney Benjamin Crump, who is best known for representing the families of Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown.

Jean was a native of the Caribbean island of St. Lucia, a 2016 graduate of Harding University ― a private Christian institution in Arkansas ― and employed by PricewaterhouseCoopers in Dallas, the company said.
