An off duty Dallas police officer shot and killed a man after walking into the wrong apartment in her building. He was a black male whose name was Botham Shem Jean. It’s just so disheartening what’s happening to our men and regard for life is no more…
According to Fox4news:
It happened around 10 p.m. Thursday. The Dallas Police Department said the officer had just finished her shift and entered what she believed was her own apartment at the South Side Flats. The complex is near the department’s headquarters on Lamar Avenue.
But it was not the right apartment and the officer ran into a man who she didn’t recognize. She ended up shooting him. Responding officers found 26-year-old Botham Shem Jean badly wounded. He was taken to the hospital and died a short time later, police said.
Police would not say whether the female officer fired her weapon because she thought Jean was an intruder or for some other reason. It’s not yet clear how she got into the wrong apartment.
