Investigators are looking to trace the movements of Dallas police officer, Amber Guyger, leading up to the night she shot and killed Botham Jean in his own apartment after, according to the officer, mistaking it for hers.
The Dallas County District Attorney’s Office has requested records from Ring Alarm security system and are seeking to obtain search warrants for footage from doorbell security cameras at townhouses near the apartment complex where the Sept. 6 shooting took place in downtown Dallas, according to WFAA.
Investigators specifically want footage recorded on that day, from 8 a.m. local time to midnight, in an effort to track Amber Guyger’s movements, WFAA reported.
A spokesperson for the district attorney’s office told ABC News on Saturday that she cannot confirm the information because the investigation into the shooting is active and ongoing.
Guyger, 30, was still wearing her police uniform when she arrived home at the South Side Flats on the night of Sept. 6 after working a full shift. She told police she opened the ajar door of the unit she believed was hers and saw a “large silhouette,” which she thought was that of a burglar, according to an arrest warrant affidavit.
The off-duty patrol officer, who is white, fired her weapon, striking 26-year-old Botham Jean, who is black. The officer called 911 for help, and the responding officers administered aid to Jean at the scene. He was then taken to a local hospital where he later died, police said.
