The Dallas police officer who killed an unarmed Black man in his own home this month has been fired, according to a new report. Amber Guyger, who entered Botham Jean‘s apartment and shot him dead the night of Sept. 6, has her job terminated on Monday by Dallas Police Chief U. Renee Hall.

The Dallas Police department tweeted confirmation of the termination late Monday morning.

The move followed Hall’s declaration last week that she was “prohibited” from firing Guyger, adding further confusion to a case that has hinted at police trying to cover-up the now-former officer’s puzzling excuse of confusing her apartment for Jean’s.

“I can’t do that because there are both local, state and federal laws that prohibit me from taking action,” Hall said Tuesday. “There are civil service laws we have to adhere to.”

It was unclear what exactly changed to allow Hall to fire Guyger on Monday.

The entire episode started the night of Sept. 6 when Guyger entered Jean’s apartment, purportedly confusing his for hers and shooting him because she thought he was a burglar. Despite how implausible her excuse was, Guyger remained free for three days until she turned herself in to be arrested, booked for manslaughter charges and released on bond during a brief, three-hour process.

Five search warrants were issued for Guyger’s home, but none was executed before she moved out. On the flip side, a search warrant was issued for Jean’s apartment, where authorities said they found marijuana, leading advocates to wonder what relevance that had on the case, suggesting police were try8ing to assassinate Jean’s character after a member of the force killed him.

This is a developing story that will be updated as details become available.

  1. Yes the police were trying to assassinate Jean’s character after a member of the force killed him. Look at her supposed first excuse- she did a 15 hour shift. SO?. Are They saying After long shifts police can become disorientated? If so, then no police should be walking around with guns after long shifts or any shifts…(I know about protecting themselves) But if their thought process become shaky, then their guns should be left at the job But they not saying tha,t are they? How about the long menacing shadow? Too many horror movies where she jumping at shadows?
