Dallas police officer kills man after coming home to wrong apartment

Police say the officer, who has not yet been publicly identified, arrived at the downtown apartment complex after working her normal police shift and was still in full uniform upon entering the victim's apartment, which she thought was her own.

Citing a relative of Jean, the St. Lucia Times reported that the officer lived in an apartment on another floor of the same apartment complex.

It was not clear what the officer may have said to 26-year-old Botham Jean after entering his home late Thursday.

The officer was not injured during the incident.

Dallas Police Chief Rene Hall said in the interest of being as transparent as possible, she has invited the Texas Rangers to take over the investigation. Police said he was rushed to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

A private Christian university in Arkansas says the 26-year-old man who was killed by an off-duty Dallas police officer who said she confused his apartment with her own was a native of the Caribbean island country of St. Lucia who often led worship services at the school's campus.

"We heard cops yelling, but otherwise had no idea what was going on", Hernandez said.
