Dallas officer accused of fatally shooting neighbor has been fired

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

Amber Guyger, the Dallas police officer who faces a manslaughter charge in the shooting death of Botham Jean, has been fired, the Police Department announced in a news release Monday. Authorities said Guyger was returning home from a 15-hour patrol shift around 10 p.m. on September 6 when she parked her vehicle on the wrong level of the parking garage outside the apartment complex, where she and Jean both lived.

"An affidavit for an arrest warrant says the officer found the door ajar at what she thought was her own apartment", NPR previously reported.

Later, Dallas police spokesman Sgt. Warren Mitchell said in a written response that adverse conduct is "conduct which adversely affects the moral or efficiency of the Department or which has a tendency to adversely affect, lower, destroy public respect and confidence in the Department or officer".

When she turned on the lights, she realized she was in the wrong unit, according to the document, which appeared to be based nearly entirely upon the officer's account.

Guyger has been charged with second-degree manslaughter and is now free on $300,000 bail.

"Our office continues to conduct its parallel investigation into this matter as we prepare a 1983 civil rights action against Guyger and the City of Dallas for the wrongful death of Mr. Jean".

Police Chief U. Renee Hall said at a town hall Tuesday she couldn't fire Guyger before an internal investigation.


'There is one overriding reason that I have not taken any administrative or employment action against Officer Amber Guyger.

She called 911. Asked where she was, she returned to the front door to see she was in the wrong unit, according to the affidavit.

Last week, TheGrio sat down with Botham Jean's mother, Allison and her attorney, Lee Merritt in our NY studio to discover the man behind the big smile, her immediate feelings the night she received the call about her son's death and her unwavering quest for justice and the truth. She then drew her gun and fired, wounding Perez in the abdomen.

Guyger had been on administrative leave since the shooting occurred.

Mr Jean grew up on the Caribbean island of St Lucia and went on to work for the professional services giant PricewaterhouseCoopers.

The Dallas Police Department said she will have the opportunity to appeal her termination. Her attorneys have said she has been in hiding since.
