Federal Lawsuit Filed In Jean’s Death

Guyger - Jean

The family of Botham Jean who was shot and killed in his own apartment by a former Dallas police officer has filed a federal lawsuit.

The lawsuit filed Friday argued Amber Guyger used excessive force when she gunned down Jean, a St. Lucia native and Harding University graduate, on September 6th.

Court records say Guyger reported she mistook his apartment for her own and thought she’d encountered an intruder.

Guyger and the city of Dallas are named as defendants in the suit.

Guyger was charged with manslaughter days after the shooting and has since been fired.    MORE
