Amber Guyger Fired From Police Force After Fatal Shooting of Neighbor Botham Jean

Investigators to look at security footage to track Dallas officer night she killed black neighbor

An internal affairs investigation determined that she had "engaged in adverse conduct" when she fatally shot her neighbor, 26-year-old Botham Jean, on September 6.

"As an employer, DPD can compel Officer Guyger to provide a statement during a DPD administrative investigation and those statements given to DPD could potentially compromise the criminal investigation", Hall said in a written statement. Still in her uniform, Guyger parked on the fourth floor of the complex and walked to what she believed was her apartment, according to an arrest warrant affidavit.

Guyger was arrested on a manslaughter charge after she shot and killed Botham Jean earlier this month. During this call the Chief announced her intent to fire Amber Guyger and offered an explanation for the delay in this action.

Legal experts told FOX 4 News there are already protections in place to prevent administrative procedures, like firing an employee, from conflicting with a criminal case.

Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings commended Hall for her decision and her leadership.

Kavanaugh accuser comes forward as Democrats seek to block SCOTUS nomination
Grassley said he will continue working on a way to hear from Ford "in an appropriate , precedented and respectful manner". Kavanaugh had been on a smooth confirmation track, but the new allegations have roiled that process.

The case will be presented to a grand jury, which will decide whether to indict Guyger for manslaughter or a different charge.

Guyger has been charged with second-degree manslaughter and is now free on $300,000 bail.

According to WFAA, the news release said Guyger, a patrol officer who had been on the job since 2013, "engaged in adverse conduct" on the night in question. She has the right to appeal the discipline. A statement released by the Dallas Police Department informs that shooting took place at 10 PM local time.

However, for many, the decision is almost three weeks too late, eroding an already tumultuous relationship between law enforcement and vulnerable communities that have been disproportionally impacted in police shootings. It's not clear if that board would have subpoena power as demanded by the protestors.
