She called 911 - officers responded in about four minutes.

A Dallas police officer was arrested Sunday in connection with the shooting death of a man after entering the wrong apartment, the Texas Rangers said. Also, the officer was not one of the people with Jean in a picture that has been circulating on social media, sources said.

In May 2017, Guyger was called to assist another officer searching for a suspect.

But he says they want Guyger "to be treated like every other citizen, and where there is evidence that they've committed a crime, that there's a warrant to be issued and an arrest to be made".

Guyger was not charged in the 2017 shooting.

The Dallas Police Department will continue to provide updates on the investigation in coordination with the Texas Rangers.

Dallas police, almost 48 hours after the fact, finally identified the police officer who shot Botham Jean, a Harding graduate, in his apartment in Dallas Thursday night. The police department released her name yesterday, which was two nights after she shot and killed Mr Jean.

Investigators are "working as vigorously and meticulously as we can to ensure the integrity of this case and ensure the integrity of the department is upheld", Hall said. It said officials at its embassy in the US would provide assistance to the family.

Guyger's arrest was announced as Jean's family and their attorneys say they met with prosecutors to demand the officer's arrest. "Clearly, we need to let Chief Hall know that while we wish her well, we must hold her accountable also".

Friends and family gathered at a vigil at Jean's church, the Dallas West Church of Christ on Saturday, CNN affiliate CBS 11 reported.

Therefore, we have ceased handling it under our normal officer involved shooting protocol, a blood sample was drawn to test for drugs and alcohol, we are in the process of obtaining a warrant, and we have also invited the Texas Rangers to conduct an independent investigation.

He told reporters Saturday that the Texas Rangers, the top criminal investigative agency in the state, has taken over the probe into the shooting death late Thursday of Botham Jean.

She walked into what "she believed to be her apartment", Dallas Police Chief Renee Hall said.

"We were dealing with what appears to be a very unique situation", Hall said at a Friday news conference.

She allegedly mistook him for an intruder and killed him.

"The ball is in their court", Hall said during a panel on Saturday.

Island authorities offered their condolences Friday to Allison Jean, who's held a number of government posts and whose 26-year-old son was killed late Thursday.

The night of the shooting, Guyger's apartment key was found in Jean's door, suggesting that she had tried to open it, Merritt said.

The victim, Botham Jean, was a Harding University graduate who worked at PricewaterhouseCoopers in Dallas. At some point, the officer fired her weapon striking the victim. Seeing a black man inside an apartment she thought was hers influenced her actions, Merritt concluded. A police spokeswoman declined to comment.

"Botham loved mankind", Jean's mother, Allison said Saturday.
