Dallas police officer Amber Guyger fired over Botham Jean shooting

"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.

In a statement, the Dallas Police Department said Guyger was terminated during a hearing with the chief Monday morning.

Dallas Police Officer Amber Guyger, who shot and killed 26-year-old Botham Jean in his apartment earlier this month, has been fired after an internal investigation found she "engaged in adverse conduct".

Guyger told investigators that she shot 26-year-old Botham Jean on September 6 after she mistakenly entered what she believed was her apartment in the same complex and saw someone she thought was a burglar.

Guyger was arrested three days after the incident after the Texas Rangers chose to postpone pursuing a warrant "until they could follow up on information that they received from the interview with the officer".

Last season, the service garnered 26.7 million views in over 1.2 billion minutes, up by over ten percent from the last season. Additionally, the onsite camera operator will communicate via intercom with the Secaucus producer, and no one else.

Guyger has been charged with second-degree manslaughter and is now free on $300,000 bail.

Neither document specifically states how close Ms Guyger was to Mr Jean when she shot him.

The victim's mother Allison Jean said she wants to see the toxicology report for the off-duty officer to determine if any drugs were in her system at the time of the shooting. When she opened the door fully, Guyger saw a "large silhouette" across the room and began giving commands, which Jean "ignored", the affidavit said.

As she navigates in slow motion, trying to gain clarity about what really happened to her son, Allison Jean is committed to pushing forward to gain justice for his death. Following the completion of the Texas Rangers' and the Dallas County District Attorney's Office's investigations in the case, it will be up to a grand jury to decide whether to indict Guyger for murder, manslaughter or not at all. After the shooting, she proceeded to call 911. A protest by the Next Generation Action Network was still scheduled to be held at the Dallas Police Department on Monday night.

Guyger can appeal her termination, according to Hall's statement. Many are conflicted by the news and await the final verdict in the troubling case.
