Dallas police say Officer Amber Guyger, accused of fatally shooting neighbor in his own apartment, has been fired, reports the Associated Press. Guyger killed 26-year-old Botham Jean on Sept. 6 after she claims she mistook his apartment for her own.

Police said in a news release that she was fired after an internal investigation found she had engaged in “adverse conduct” when she was charged with manslaughter.

Jean family attorneys and protesters have called for her firing following the shooting. Guyger had been on administrative leave since the shooting.

Just last week Dallas Police Chief U. Renee Hall said she couldn’t fire Guyger before an internal investigation.

Today the final funeral for Botham Jean will be held in his home country of St. Lucia, where he will be laid to rest.

        Robert, that’s a little extreme at this point. Let’s wait for facts to come out. The only thing we really know at this point is that he was a small time drug dealer. Certainly no reason to be shot for

      OMG! Did Mac Stupid defend a black man?? Even if he did have weed in his Apt. So f*ckin what. That don’t make him a dealer, and Mac Stupid, you sound even stupider by calling him a drug dealer in reference to weed. She was LOL a cop, past tense was. WTF was she at his place? Call it what it is, a drugged up alcoholic killed a man in his own apt.
