  • The apartment complex where police say a Dallas officer killed a man after she mistook a neighbor's apartment for her own                        CBS DFW

Police say the officer explained that she had mistakenly entered Jean's home, thinking it was hers.

"Right now there are more questions than there are answers", Hall said.

Botham Shem Jean, 26, died after the shooting, which occurred at about 10 p.m.in the Cedars section of Dallas, according to Dallas Police Chief U. Renee Hall.

"It's not clear what (the) interaction was between her and the victim", Hall said.

In a Facebook post, Earl, Jean's uncle posted a collage of pictures in remembrance of his nephew.

Obama's return is not without some downsides for Democrats, as a Republican senator pointed out. The speech was a preview of the argument that Obama is likely to make throughout the fall.

The Dallas Police Department has since ceased handling the incident under its "normal officer-involved shooting protocol" and has invited the Texas Rangers to conduct an independent investigation.

He described himself on LinkedIn as a "young professional, engaged in developing a career built upon integrity, dedication and relationships, leveraging useful technologies to gain an understanding of and add value in a range (of) industries, striving towards leadership in my career, my community and society".

Jean was pronounced dead Thursday night at a Dallas hospital, according to CBS.

The officer involved in the shooting was not hurt.

He graduated in 2016 with a double major in accounting and information systems from Harding University in Searcy, said Allen Frazier, dean of the College of Business at Harding. A family friend said that Allison Jean could not comment Friday because she was receiving chemotherapy treatment. He was active on campus and in student groups, including as a member of the Good News Singers, the university said Friday. "I mean, we have not interviewed her, and like I said this is just a preliminary statement". "The officer reported to the responding officers that she entered the victim's apartment believing that it was her own".

He's also the first African-American man to win all four awards. "It is an incredible moment for him and his family". Musical theater legends Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice , who composed the show, also won as producers.

A relative, believed to be Jean's uncle, made an emotional Facebook post where he asked, "How can this nasty world take you away from me?" He worked for PricewaterhouseCoopers, a multinational audit and consulting firm with offices in Downtown Dallas.

Jean's mother, Allison, is a former Saint Lucia government official who oversaw the island's Department of Education, Innovation & Gender Relations as well as the Ministry of Infrastructure, Port Services & Transport, according to reporting from the Dallas Morning News.

"This is a bad tragedy", Jean's employer said. That July, he went to work for PwC in risk assurance.
