The police department in Dallas, Texas is seeking a warrant to charge an unnamed police officer with shooting and killing Botham Shem Jean, 26, in his apartment on Thursday, September 6.

CNN reported that the officer thought she was entering her own apartment and believed Jean was an intruder. Jean was a native of the St. Lucia area of the U.S. city.

Dallas police chief Renee Hall said the officer has been tested for drugs and alcohol.

UPDATE: The New York Times has reported that the accused officer is Amber Guyger, 30. She was charged with manslaughter and released on bail of $300,000 (€259,000).
