However, those cases involve officers who were on duty at the time of the shootings. The officer is white, and Jean was black.

Lee Merritt, attorney for Jean's family, lashed out at the decision to delay her arrest Saturday evening, calling it "deferential treatment" based on Guyger being a police officer.

A police spokeswoman, Debra Webb, said she did not have further information on the case, including when the officer would be booked into jail. He was then taken to a local hospital, where he later died, the police chief said.

An attorney for the family of a man fatally shot by an off-duty Dallas police officer says an arrest warrant should be issued for the officer.

"Super scary because the police are supposed to protect you and then they come home and you're just hanging out in your own house and then they come home thinking they're home or whatever", said Richard Healy Nelson, who lives in the complex. Also, the officer was not one of the people with Jean in a picture that has been circulating on social media, sources said. "But my friend who knows the police officer says the one on the '(left)' is NOT the 5'3" blonde haired, blue eyed police officer who fired the shot". "Botham wanted all of us to unite", said Allison Jean. "The state needs to pay for my son".

A neighbor of Botham Shem Jean's - the man killed by a Dallas police officer on Thursday - says she took a video of the immediate aftermath of the shooting. She was not injured. The officer told investigators she mistakenly entered the wrong apartment and encountered Jean. Hall said the officer's blood was drawn at the scene so that it could be tested for alcohol and drugs.

A police spokeswoman referred questions to the Texas Ranger Division.

During a criminal justice panel on Saturday, Hall vowed that the police department will be transparent.

Dallas' police chief says a warrant for manslaughter hasn't been issued for an officer who killed a man in his home because the Texas Rangers asked her department to wait. Officer Guyger ran into a man who she didn't recognize and ended up shooting him.

Jean's mother, Allison, suggested in an interview on Friday that her son might still be alive if he was white.

Regardless, she'll perform in Raleigh on January 27, followed by January 29 at Charlotte's Spectrum Center. Cher will bring the tour to the PPG Paints Arena on Thursday, April 18.

"There is so much rhetoric surrounding this incident".

'Right now, there are more questions than we have answers, ' Hall told a news conference.

We ask that you work alongside us as we move through this process.

"It's not clear what [the] interaction was between them", Hall said. Seeing a black man inside an apartment she thought was hers influenced her actions, Merritt concluded.

Botham Shem Jean often led chapel at Harding University, where he graduated. Jean was excited about singing it, though he had not heard of the song.

The mayor said he's contacted the prime minister of Saint Lucia and planned to meet with him in Dallas later this week. "So he shared it with us at Lectureship that night, and it was a truly special moment".

DPD's announcement came after an attorney representing Jean's family named Guyger, 30, as the off-duty cop who shot and killed Jean Thursday night.

"I believe in prayer and think God can heal", Tease said in welcoming the crowd, which included a sizable contingent of Harding alumni as well as many of Botham Jean's colleagues from PricewaterhouseCoopers, where the 2016 accounting graduate worked.

Emory Tease, an elderly in the church, said he could not fathom not hearing Jean's voice again. "Botham Jean was a member of the PwC family in our Dallas office, and we are simply heartbroken to hear of his death".
