Dallas, Texas– Amber Guyger, 30, was booked into the Kaufman County jail today after she was arrested in the shooting death of her neighbor, 26-year-old Botham Shem Jean.
Guyger shot Jean Thursday night after authorities said she walked into the wrong apartment and thought he was an intruder.
Jean’s family said the story was suspicious and called for the officer to be arrested. Jeans story was shared widely on social media sites, which added to the public pressure. Three days after the shooting Guyger was arrested but posted bail one-hour later.
