Police said it wasn't clear what interaction occurred between Jean and Guyger leading to the shooting.

Guyger was not arrested for killing Jean until nearly three days after the shooting.

A criminal homicide is charged as manslaughter when a person "recklessly causes the death of an individual", according to the Texas Penal Code. They didn't provide details. It wasn't immediately clear if Guyger had an attorney.

Authorities haven't said how the officer got into Jean's home, or whether his door was open or unlocked. This family is upset.

Guyger, 30, is a four-year veteran of the police force. The block of flats is just a few streets from Dallas police headquarters.

At a news conference early Friday, Dallas police Sgt. Warren Mitchell said they had yet to interview the officer and would not speculate as to whether she mistakenly entered another apartment and believed the man already inside was an intruder.

Per CBS News, the Texas Rangers have taken over the investigation and have placed a manslaughter charge against Guyger on hold.

The family has retained the services of civil rights attorney Ben Crump and Dallas lawyer Lee Merritt. Martin, a black, unarmed 17-year-old, was shot and killed by a neighborhood watch volunteer in 2012 in Sanford, Florida.

So, the officer broke into Botham's home and killed him?

Jean's family arrived in Dallas Saturday morning and met with Mayor Mike Rawlings before attending a vigil in the afternoon at the 26-year-old's church. He was shot by a Dallas police officer in his apartment on Thursday night.

Mr Jean's mother, Allison Jean, wondered whether race could have been a factor.

Guyger was in full uniform when she shot Jean, who was black, Hall said.

While Johnson could not answer the question during their meeting, the new evidence brought forward included a witness and video footage in the aftermath of the shooting, according to Merritt.

A blood sample was drawn from the officer to test for alcohol and drugs.

Jean grew up on the Caribbean island nation of Saint Lucia, where some of his family still lives.

Allison Jean in comments Friday broadcast by Dallas TV station KXAS questioned whether the off-duty officer would have reacted differently if she encountered a white man.

Todd and Debbie Gentry drove to Dallas on Friday and picked up Botham Jean's mother at the airport. An affidavit indicates a man identified as Uvaldo Perez got out of a auto and became combative with Guyger and another officer. Perez got out of a auto and became combative with Ms Guyger and another officer. She then drew her gun and fired, wounding Perez in the abdomen. Guyger then shot Perez. Neither Guyger nor the other officers were injured in the 2017 shooting.

In the 2017 confrontation, the affidavit says Guyger was one of two officers called to help another officer.

The victim was a devout Christian who graduated from a university in Arkansas and was working for multinational PricewaterhouseCoopers.
