When officers initially responded to the scene, they began investigating the case as an officer-involved shooting, Hall said.

Dallas police say one of their officers was going home after her shift when she walked into the wrong apartment and shot the man inside.

Dallas Police Chief Renee Hall said Friday afternoon that 26-year-old Botham Jean was killed in the shooting.

It is not clear what prompted the shooting but the officer shot Jean and then called police.

Police haven't released the name or race of the officer, who had arrived home in-uniform and who wasn't injured.

Reporters pressed the police chief about the officer's mental state when she entered the apartment at 1210 S. Lamar St.in Dallas - was she worn out, or under the influence? - but Hall didn't want to speculate. "Please join us in praying for Botham's friends and family", Harding University said in the statement Friday.

The District Attorney's office is assisting in the investigation and the Texas rangers have also been called in to conduct an independent investigation.

When it comes to how the officer gained access to Jean's apartment, residents of the complex said tenants can access their individual units with a regular key or through a keypad code.


It was unclear initially how the officer entered Jean's home, or why she mistook it for her own residence.

Police have not spoken to any other individuals at this time and did not say that there were any witnesses.

The 26-year-old man was taken to the hospital with serious injuries where he died, according to KDFW.

"Right now there are more questions than we have answers", she said.

"Just last week I was thinking of what to get you for your birthday", she wrote on Facebook, "now I have to go pick out your casket". He was a graduate of Harding University in Arkansas and was working at PricewaterhouseCoopers, a London-based professional services firm, before his death.

A vigil has been organized this evening by Mothers Against Police Brutality outside Dallas Police Headquarters at 7 p.m.

"This is a awful tragedy", the company wrote on Facebook. He was listed on LinkedIn as a risk assurance experienced associate.

"I wish I would wake up and find that it wasn't true", she told NBC News, adding that the circumstances surrounding Mr Jean's death made no sense.
