Dallas police fire Officer Amber Guyger

In the interim, an attorney for Jean's family voiced concern that she was getting preferential treatment as a law enforcement officer. She told investigators that she had just ended a shift when she returned in uniform to the South Side Flats apartment complex. She parked on the fourth floor, instead of the third, where she lived, according to the affidavit, possibly suggesting that she was confused or disoriented.

On the day after the shooting, Chief Hall said her department was seeking manslaughter charges against Guyger, a four-year veteran of the police force.

The entire episode started the night of September 6 when Guyger entered Jean's apartment, purportedly confusing his for hers and shooting him because she thought he was a burglar. She can still appeal her firing.

"Officer Guyger was terminated for her actions", the news release said.

Rosenstein vehemently denies the allegations, saying " The New York Times's story is inaccurate and factually incorrect". Rosenstein or perhaps both. "But there's a lingering stench we're going to get rid of that, too".

When she put her key in the apartment door, which was unlocked and slightly ajar, it opened, the affidavit said. Court records show Guyger said she thought she had encountered a burglar inside her own home.

Guyger was arrested three days after the incident after the Texas Rangers made a decision to postpone pursuing a warrant "until they could follow up on information that they received from the interview with the officer".

Guyger, who was hired by the department in November 2013, had been assigned to the city's Southeast Patrol Division.

Guyger's case is expected to go to a grand jury. The Dallas County District Attorney's office is also conducting its own investigation.
