Dallas shooting victim was St. Lucia native

Botham Shem Jean 26 was shot dead in his home by a Dallas police officer Thursday night

According to police, the officer mistook Jean's apartment for her own. How many more Black men must be killed before we take action? Although she was off-duty she was still wearing her uniform. She also said the Texas Rangers will conduct an independent investigation.

A Dallas police officer who shot and killed her neighbor and later explained she had mistaken his apartment for her own will be charged with manslaughter, the police chief said Friday.

"I need answers for my baby brother", Allisa Charles-Findley said.

He also questioned how Jean's name was released to the public when police simultaneously confirmed that the next of kin notification was not made.

According to the St. Lucia Times, Jean was the son of Alison Jean, who has supervised the island's Department of Education, Innovation & Gender Relations as well as the Ministry of Infrastructure, Port Services & Transport.

"We are here to express our outrage, and we are here to demand accountability", said Imam Omar Suleiman, an activist at the event organized by the Dallas-based Mothers Against Police Brutality group.

"Now I have to go pick out your casket", she wrote on Facebook. But given what investigators now know about the case, they made a decision to pursue the manslaughter charge, authorities said.

Jean was a graduate of Harding University in Arkansas and worked at PricewaterhouseCoopers, The Dallas Morning News reports.

"I still don't believe he's gone, but we have to accept it", Brandt said in a phone interview.

"Right now, there are more questions than we have answers", Police Chief U. Renee Hall told a news conference. Her eyes welling with tears, she stopped in front of a makeshift memorial in front of Dallas police headquarters.

Speaking to NBC News on the death of Botham Jean, mom, Allison Jean shared: "I couldn't believe it when we got that call".

A blood sample was drawn from the officer to test for alcohol and drugs.

Jean's mother was incredulous when hearing the news that her son had been gunned down by a police officer in his own home.

Botham Jean is seen leading worship at a university presidential reception in Dallas, Sept. 21, 2017.

Friends of Jean's have taken to social media leaving their thoughts, prayers and well wishes for friends and family of the young man. She told reporters: "It's not clear what interaction was between them, but at some point, she fired her weapon, striking the victim".

"Seeing the transparency that's already taken place and seeing a warrant has already been issued - these kinds of things help build credibility with us", the pastor said.

He said CGID intends to write US Senators and Members of Congress from NY to push for a national review and reform of protocols on how and when law enforcement officers engage in the use of force.

Frazier said Jean was "a very recognizable figure on campus".
