Document details what Dallas police officer said happened when she killed neighbor

MSN.com:–   DALLAS – An arrest affidavit released Monday afternoon gives additional details of what happened the night a Dallas police officer shot and killed a 26-year-old man inside his apartment.

Amber Guyger, 30, is charged with manslaughter in the death of Botham Shem Jean on Thursday night. She claimed she mistook Jean’s apartment for hers and opened fire, believing Jean was an intruder.

According to the affidavit, Guyger was on the wrong floor and didn’t check that the apartment was hers until after she shot Jean.

Guyger’s apartment is directly below Jeans, the document says.

When Guyger got off of her shift at around 10 p.m., the affidavit says she parked on the fourth floor of the parking garage.

Jean was home alone when Guyger approached his door.

“She inserted a unique door key, with an electronic chip, into the door key hole,” the affidavit says. “The door, which was slightly ajar prior to Guyger’s arrival, fully opened under the force of the key insertion.”

Once the door opened, Guyger saw Jean across the room. She described him as looking like a large silhouette because it was dark inside. She said she believed he was an intruder.

“Guyger drew her firearm, gave verbal commands that were ignored by Jean,” the affidavit says. “As a result, Guyger fired her handgun two times striking (Jean) one time in the torso.”

Guyger then went into Jean’s apartment and called 911. She turned on the lights and when dispatchers asked where she was, Guyger returned to the front door and discovered she was at the wrong apartment, the document says.

Guyger was arrested on Sunday evening and released from jail after posting a $300,000 bond.

District Attorney Faith Johnson said the investigation into what happened that night is ongoing. The final case will be presented to a grand jury, who will then decide whether or not to charge Guyger with manslaughter, murder or any other charges, Johnson said.

“Trust me, we will present to the grand jury everything that we can possibly present to them,” Johnson said at a news conference on Monday morning.

    So, she needed to outside to check the address to let the dispatcher know where she was? That makes no damn sense. Who does not know their house address from the top of their heads. She needs to be charged for murder and not manslaughter!

    She inserted a unique door key, with an electronic chip, into the door key hole,” the affidavit says. “The door, which was slightly ajar prior to Guyger’s arrival, fully opened under the force of the key insertion.”

    So she didn’t realized the door was slightly opened? Smh. This woman had to be on drugs.
