The officer called 911 and authorities responded and took Jean to the hospital.

Last night, a female Dallas Police officer returned to what she believed to be her apartment after her shift ended - she was still in uniform when she encountered Mr. Jean inside the apartment.

A police officer in Dallas shot and killed a young man inside his own apartment on Thursday night, saying later that she mistakenly believed she had entered her own home.

The 26-year-old officer told investigators she thought she had entered her own residence, the statement said.

People who live nearby said they got a notification about the shooting on the app Nextdoor.

Police haven't released the name of the officer, who wasn't injured.

Police said they are conducting a joint investigation with the Dallas County district attorney's office.

The officer has been placed on administrative leave pending the results of the investigation.

Cher coming to Ottawa April 24
The Canadian Tire Centre box office does not sell tickets in-person on the first day of sales except for Ottawa Senators games. Cher is hitting a career high-note with rave reviews for her role in "Mamma Mia 2 - Here We Go Again" this summer.

It's unclear, however, how the officer managed to confuse the two apartments and why she apparently fired her weapon at the man.

Jean, originally from the island of St. Lucia, came to the U.S. to study at the Christian Harding University in Arkansas, per NBC, where he is remembered as "always friendly, always smiling".

Chief Hall stated that the officer is Caucasian.

In a news conference on Friday morning, Dallas Police Sgt Warren Mitchell said they had not yet interviewed the officer involved. Our entire family grieves today for the loss of Botham who has meant so very much to us.

Jean worked at PricewaterhouseCoopers in Dallas, an worldwide company that does assurance, tax and advisory work for companies around the world.

Former classmates from Harding University told the ChristianChronicle.org that he was known for his deep faith and his handsome singing voice.

"This is a awful tragedy". "Jean was a member of the PwC family in our Dallas office and we are simply heartbroken to hear of his death". He was also the son of the Allison Jean, the Caribbean nation's former permanent secretary in the Ministry of Education, Innovation and Gender Relations, according to the St. Lucia Times. In a service this morning, Harding University President Bruce McLarty shared some memories of Botham with students in chapel.
