Dallas Cop Shoots And Kills Man After Allegedly Entering His Apartment Thinking It Was Her Own

By John Sundholm

The off-duty Dallas police officer who killed a Black man in his own apartment, claiming  she mistook it for her own, has been identified.

Amber Guyger is a four-year veteran of the Dallas PD. After her shift last Thursday, she returned to her apartment building across from the Dallas Police Department's headquarters. But instead of going to her own unit, Guyger went to that of her neighbor, 26-year-old Botham Shem Jean. When he opened the door, she shot him, thinking he was an intruder.
