Dallas police officer Amber Guyger fired after fatally shooting neighbor Botham Jean

Authorities seek doorbell camera footage for night Botham Jean was shot by police officer in his Texas apartment

Almost three weeks after Dallas Police Officer Amber Guyger entered the apartment of Botham Shem Jean and gunned down the 26-year-old man, the Dallas Police Department has finally terminated the disgraced officer. That follows an internal investigation that concluded that Guyger "engaged in adverse conduct" when she was arrested on September 9 for manslaughter, according to a statement from the police department. As the recent statement indicates, Guyger is still in a position to appeal Hall's decision and is free look for work at another police department while she is out on bail.

Chief Hall addressed concerns about Guyger's employment status late last week, saying she would not take action as long as the investigation was active because she didn't want to risk compromising the criminal case.

The case is before a grand jury, and District Attorney Faith Johnson said the panel may decide to uphold the manslaughter charge on which Guyger was arrested, or it could consider charging her with murder.

Police said that Jean was fatally shot once in the torso. That position apparently changed over the weekend, as Guyger's firing was not expected.

She told investigators that she had just ended a shift when she returned in uniform to the South Side Flats apartment complex.

"As Botham Shem Jean's family has his home-going service in St. Lucia this week, this announcement of Amber Guyger's termination from the Dallas Police Department is bittersweet for Botham's family", the Jean family's attorneys, Ben Crump, Lee Merritt and Daryl Washington, said in a statement. She also said that the apartment door was left ajar and that the room was completely dark when she fired.

The search warrant statement says Mr Jean "confronted the officer at the door". Guyger told officers at the scene that she'd gotten off on the wrong floor of her apartment building by mistake, and believed Jean to be an intruder. Before she was sacked, she "remained on the city payroll on administrative leave", The Texas Tribune reports.

When she turned on the lights, she realized she was in the wrong unit, according to the document, which appeared to be based nearly entirely upon the officer's account. Jean died at a local hospital.

Police arrested Guyger three days later.
