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.
