When she put her key in the apartment door, which was unlocked and slightly ajar, it opened, the affidavit said.
The Dallas County District Attorney's Office have requested three warrants for security footage that monitors the townhouses near the apartment where Officer Amber Guyger, 30, shot and killed 26-year-old Botham Jean. Dallas PD says they determined Guyger engaged in "adverse conduct" - and she was officially fired Monday morning.
Guyger was sacked during a hearing held Monday after an Internal Affairs investigation concluded that she engaged in adverse conduct, according to a message posted on the Twitter account for the Dallas Police Department. She claims she mistakenly went to the wrong apartment the night of September 6 and shot Jean dead because she believed he was an intruder. I don't want to interfere with the on-going criminal investigation into her actions, ' she said.
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.
She called 911 and, when asked where she was, returned to the front door to see she was in the wrong unit, according to the affidavit.
Guyger has been with the department since 2013. A protest by the Next Generation Action Network was still scheduled to be held at the Dallas Police Department on Monday night.
Guyger fatally shot Botham Jean earlier this month in his residence.
