Dallas officer fired for killing innocent man in his own apartment

Dallas officer fired for killing innocent man in his own apartment

A Dallas police officer who is accused of killing her neighbor after mistaking his apartment for her own was sacked Monday.

Dallas Police Chief Reneé Hall issued a statement Friday explaining why no disciplinary action has been taken against Guyger.

Police said in a news release that she was sacked after an internal investigation found she had engaged in "adverse conduct" when she was charged with manslaughter.

Investigators are seeking security footage to trace the white Dallas police officer's movements the night she killed her black neighbor in his own apartment earlier this month.

Raptors reportedly interested in Jimmy Butler
A trade potentially takes him off 2019 free agency, but at the cost of a likely lottery pick or somewhere in the 15-20 range. With the T-Wolves trying to move Butler early this week, stay tuned for more updates on the superstar swingman.

An arrest affidavit obtained by Fox News said Botham allegedly ignored Guyger's "verbal commands" before she opened fire.

Guyger had returned from work on the evening of September 6, but had mistakenly entered Jean's apartment. Court records show Guyger said she thought she had encountered a burglar inside her own home. "Don't they train police?"

She has been charged with manslaughter for Jean's death.

Police had been criticised for not immediately identifying the officer that killed Jean, who the mayor called a "model citizen". "There are civil service laws we have to adhere to". The case will eventually be presented to a grand jury by the Dallas County District Attorney's office and that charge could be upgraded. She is out on bond.
