Dallas News reported that Guyger had previously been involved in a shooting, "The officer who killed a man in his apartment Thursday after she apparently mistook it for her own home also shot a suspect during an arrest in 2017". Texas Rangers coordinated with the Dallas County District Attorney's office to obtain the warrant for Guyger's arrest, officials said, but the warrant had not yet been released. The woman was in a auto with Perez and when police arrived, Perez left the vehicle and confronted the officers, police said. The officer's name had already been circulating in social media posts, the report said. As officers on the scene tried to figure out who the woman was, the man in the back seat got out, defying orders to stay in the auto.

Hall said she had spoken with Jean's sister and offered the family condolences. Neither Guyger nor the other officers were injured in the 2017 shooting.

A co-founder of Mothers Against Police Brutality, Sara Mokuria, says the group is happy with the arrest, but believes it should have come days ago.

The news of Guyger's arrest broke on the evening of September 9, 2018 after two days of confusion about whether Guyger, 30, would face charges in the weird shooting death of Botham Shem Jean, a Saint Lucian man who moved to America to attend a Christian college and later got a job in risk assessment for a prominent company in Dallas.

"Texas Rangers released her moments ago". Jean, who worked for PricewaterhouseCoopers, was shot once in the chest.

The Texas Rangers were requested to conduct the investigation to eliminate the appearance of any potential bias.

Jean's family has been demanding charges against Guyger in Jean's death.

"We demanded for Officer Amber Guyger to be arrested and it happened", Jean family attorney Lee Merrit told ABC News Sunday night.

Richard Healy Nelson, who lives in the apartment building where the shooting took place, told KDFW-TV the incident was unnerving.

Many questions remain about what led Ms Guyger to shoot Mr Jean.

Rawlings says Jean was a young professional who displayed leadership and was a man of faith, and that he was "exactly the sort of citizen we want to have".

However, that would leave a shortfall of roughly 900,000 kilowatts, causing inconveniences to many in Hokkaido. In the meantime, authorities sent power-generator vehicles to hospitals and other locations.

"Our first & foremost priority will be to ensure justice is served for this family".

Jean was shot by an off-duty officer who was returning home after working a shift.

Rumors suggested that Guyger knew Jean and the two were involved in a romantic relationship.

The Texas Rangers will take the appropriate time to review the vast amount of evidence and information secured by Dallas Police Department investigators. She told the responding officers that she came into the victim's apartment thinking it was hers.

"Right now, there are more questions than answers", Hall said.

Mr Jean is due to be buried on his native St. Lucia on Thursday.

But it was not clear Saturday whether the officer has been formally charged or whether she's in custody.

While much of the national conversation focuses on race - Botham Jean was black, while Guyger is white - his mother said her son "never saw color".
