"On behalf of the Dallas Police Department, we are continuing to pray for Mr. Jean's family, and ask that the community remain patient as this investigation is conducted", Dallas Police Chief Ulysha Renee Hall said in a statement.

On Saturday, the Texas Rangers, which is now handling the investigation, chose to postpone pursuing a warrant against Guyger "until they could follow up on information that they received from the interview with the officer", the Dallas Police Department said.

Police referred questions to the Rangers. "The extent of their relationship is under investigation", said Instagram user Marriam_Muhammad about the incident.

On September 6, 2018 at about 9:59 p.m., an off duty Dallas Police officer called police dispatch and said she was involved in a shooting at the apartments located at 1210 S. Lamar. Dallas Fire Rescue also responded and took Mr. Jean to the hospital where he later died.

Merritt added that there was no previous connection between Jean and Guyger prior to the shooting.

Hall said the officer's blood was drawn to be tested for drugs and alcohol. When she turned on the lights, she realized she went into the wrong apartment and killed a man in his own home, according to police.

The mother of a black Caribbean man who was fatally shot by a white Dallas police officer who said she mistook his apartment for her own wonders whether her son's race was a factor in his killing. Ms Guyger is white.

Allison Jean in comments Friday broadcast by Dallas TV station KXAS questioned whether the off-duty officer would have reacted differently if she encountered a white man. Crump said Jean was "living, doing everything that you want a young person to do".

Perez got out of a vehicle and became combative with Ms Guyger and another officer. "That includes holding Amber Guyger accountable for her crimes as well as ID'ing all responsible for enabling this incident". "The very Bible says to render to Caesar that which is Caesar so if Caesar says to pay a penalty for a life, then she has to pay".

Ms Guyger was not charged in the 2017 shooting.

In a statement Saturday, the police department said the Texas Rangers took over the investigation to "eliminate the appearance of any potential bias".

Jean graduated in 2016 with a degree in accounting and management information systems from Harding University, where Bertram Jean said his son got the Arkansas school to send students to St. Lucia over the summer to do charity work.
