Neighbors Poke Holes in Dallas Cop’s Account of Shooting Black Neighbor in His Home
Last Thursday 26-year-old Botham Jean, a black man, was shot and killed in his own home by a white female Dallas police officer who claims she mistook his apartment for hers after getting home late at night. Now new evidence is coming to light from neighbors, suggesting Amber Guyger, the police officer, may not be telling the full story.
According to Guyger’s version of the story she got home Thursday night after a fifteen-hour shift and mistakenly parked on the fourth floor of the garage, she normally parks on the third floor. Unaware she was on the wrong floor, Guyger proceeded to what she claims she thought was her apartment and put her key in the door. The door, she says, was unlocked and slightly ajar and thus, opened when she put her key in the lock.
Lights were off in the apartment, and Guyger claims she saw a shadowy figure inside. She proceeded to give verbal commands to the figure, which Guyger claims were ignored and so, thinking she was being burglarized, she drew her gun and fired two times. Jean died of a gunshot wound to his chest.
Monday evening, however, lawyers for Jean’s family reported that at least two neighbors have told them conflicting versions of events that night. Lee Merritt, who is representing the family, said two neighbors told him they heard knocking on a door in the hallway before the shooting.
Another neighbor told Merritt, they heard a woman’s voice saying, “Let me in! Let me in!” Then they heard gunshots and a man’s voice say, “Oh my God! Why did you do that?”
Jean’s family also contends that he would not have left the door ajar and that he had made a point of buying a particularly bright red doormat to ensure no one would mistake his apartment for theirs.
Merritt said Jean was a “meticulous individual” who made it “a point to close the door behind him.”
“He put everything in a particular place.
“In fact, to ensure no one mistook his apartment the way this officer is claiming in this case, he went out and bought the biggest, brightest red rug and placed it right there at his doorstep,” Merritt said.
Guyger was arrested last Sunday for the shooting and will face a grand jury to decide on charges for her case. Gugyger, a four-year veteran of the Dallas PD, was involved in another shooting in 2017. Guyger shot a man named Uvaldo Perez after a struggle broke out between the two and according to reports, a taser she fired failed to stop him.
Jean was originally born in St. Lucia but attended college in Arkansas. He graduated in 2016 from Harding University, and often led campus religious services as a student. Since graduation, he had worked as an accountant for the firm PwC.
Cold blooded killer
She murdered him period
Trust me…she’s ruined!
Good tell on her trifling ass
She doesn’t even look like a police officer. She reminds of one the inmates in my first command the old women house CIFW.New York City Department of Correction. Or a meth head idiot.
Lock that pig up!! ???
He was making too much noise right above her flat, so she murdered him. Now, execute her in a noisy room. Bitch.?
This looks like a case of domestic violence!! She needs to be charge with. Murder!!
The police are trying now to say that witnesses story are wrong. Then the FBI need to investigate. Not any Rangers.
She intended to kill him.
We’re they involved? Just wondering.
Psycho lady thought she could get away with murder. And why would she think that…? ?
Did they check for drugs and Alcohol in her system.
There was another report out earlier saying they dated or hooked up, he broke up with her and she refused to get over it. She kept her copy of his key.
im pretty sure she had planned on killin him so much coincidence ..that bitch white fkn privilege
Deborah I agree with you 100%
What the hell was she doing in his apartment?only a bitch on drugs mistake someone else’s apartment for hers. She knew what she was doing that bitch needs the death penalty point blank period.‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️
If she is too stupid to know where she lives, she is too stupid to be a cop
This officer story sounds fishy to me it seems from the very beginning when I heard this story that she might’ve had an affair with this young man and something went wrong in the relationship and she retaliated against-him as a rejected lover
She is a white cop so she is telling the truth . Like white cops don’t lie .The story changes say lie lie lie .
She murdered him.
Sad story unhappy Ending!
Murder is what she did
Nial her ass!!!
Was she on drugs,how in the hell can she not know where she lives,and go in someone’s home and kill him, Crazy
Ugly piece of crap murdered a very nice young man.
insanity is now becoming not just ‘normal’, it’s enthusiastically encouraged…SAD…?
Please all you decieved voters stop voting for the politicians who encourage this. Murder is murder.
I’ve found that female cops tend to have the biggest chips on their shoulders. Never met one that didn’t act like she had something to prove
She commuted murder.
