Family of Dallas Man Killed by Cop in Own Home Sues City

The family of Botham Jean, a 26-year-old Dallas man shot to death this month in his home by a female police officer, is suing the city for civil rights violations.

Jean’s family maintain that his rights were violated on Sept. 6 when Officer Amber Guyger said she “mistakenly went to his apartment and shot and killed him, thinking she was encountering an intruder in her apartment.”

Guyger, 30, who has been a police officer for four years, was arrested and charged with manslaughter on Sept. 9. After just a few hours in custody, she was released on a bond of $300,000.

Guyger reportedly moved out of the complex the weekend she killed Jean. She was not fired until 18 days after the shooting.
