The discrepancies center around how Guyger gained access to an apartment that was not hers and whether or not she exchanged words with Jean before shooting him dead, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

A search was conducted at Mr Jean's apartment after the deadly shooting. She said she only realized she wasn't in her own home after she had shot him and turned on the lights.

When she put her key in the apartment door, which was unlocked and slightly ajar, it opened, the affidavit said.

In addition, Dallas News reports, Amber Guyger is only leave from the police department and allegedly "Dallas police aren't ready to discuss whether she will keep her job as an officer".

At his funeral, Jean was described as an talented and passionate man, who confided to his uncle that he might want to become prime minister of his native Caribbean island country of St. Lucia.

Between Guyger's two accounts of what happened that night and her claim that Jean failed to "follow her verbal commands" in his own house is all a move Black America has seen before.

More than 100 people were rescued and up to 75 more were awaiting rescue on Saturday morning, according to a town official. One of the towns worst affected is New Bern, which sits between the Neuse and Trent rivers in North Carolina.

Guyger was charged with manslaughter in the killing and has since been released on a $300,000 bond.

'To have my son smeared in such a way, I think shows that there (are people) who are really nasty, who are really dirty and are going to cover up for the devil Amber Guyger, ' she said. "This was an intent to come after this young man's character, which is impeccable by the way".

Falconer said Guyger should have been better trained to de-escalate any conflict with Jean once the two saw each other, and to determine quickly that she was in the wrong apartment.

Jean was being presented to the public as a university graduate on the partnership track at a prestigious firm who sang in the choir, Merritt said. But if we're looking for explanations and complexity, why have the Dallas police not released information regarding warrants to search Guyger's apartment, or even revealed whether they sought one? It's unknown if a search warrant was also executed at the officer's apartment.

It's not clear whose weed it was, but a civil rights attorney representing Jean's family says the department's motives to search for "narcotics" were all too clear. Jean then "confronted" Guyger "at the door", the document says, adding, "A neighbor stated he heard an exchange of words, immediately followed by at least two gunshots". "I need to go protect myself, '" Whalen said.
