Uncle: Man killed by officer aspired to St. Lucia leadership

His friends called him Bo. And the Dallas Police officer who killed him did not kill a perfect man. No one is perfect

Facebook Amber Guyger's family member Noe Garza says he is not using white power symbols in this photo. The Dallas Police Department should take action.

Bertram and Allison Jean want to know why Dallas officer Amber Guyger shot and killed their son in his own apartment. Some also spoke about the shocking way Jean, who was black, died - fatally shot on September 6 by the white officer who said she mistook his apartment for her own. In the video, Guyger appears to be on the phone and crying before other officers arrive. She was later released on a $300,000 bond, per CBS News. He said he was not using white power or gang hand signals but rather was making innocuous references to ages and letters unrelated to race. "I am amazed by your strength and I am in awe by what an incredible young man you raised", Ryan told mourners. "We all bleed red".

"It's looking specifically for drug paraphernalia", Merritt said of the search.

Guyger, 30, was arrested and charged with manslaughter, but Dallas County District Attorney Faith Johnson said a grand jury will decide the ultimate charge, and she has not ruled out seeking a murder indictment.

On Thursday, multiple news outlets reported the results of a search warrant executed on Jean's apartment.

"I'm honored to pay tribute to Bo in his memory with all of you, for you are the people who loved Bo and the people that Bo loved the most, and especially to Bo's family". Merritt also revealed that the same day as Jean's killing, someone in Guyger's unit made a noise complaint about Jean's apartment. She told police she used her electronic key to open the door, but it pushed open. She noticed the door was "ajar" and in the dark apartment she saw a "large silhouette" inside.

The front door of apartment 1378, directly below Botham Jean's apartment and identified by neighbors as Amber Guyger's front door.

Guyger drew her firearm, "gave verbal commands that were ignored by (Jean)", and then she fired two shots.

The warrant doesn't say if investigators were looking for narcotics that Guyger possibly had, or if they believed they were in Jean's apartment. "Upon being asked where she was located by emergency dispatchers, she returned to the front door to observe the address and discovered she was at the wrong apartment", the document alleges.

Jean was shot just before 10 p.m. Guyger called 911.

And in the case of 18-year-old Michael Brown, shot to death by police officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson, Mo., in 2014, police zeroed in on Brown's alleged attempt to steal cigars from a convenience store prior to the shooting, while critics fired back that it had nothing to do with it. "She claimed that she went into a place she thought was her apartment".

Friends and family on Thursday remembered a man gunned down by a Dallas police officer as a deeply religious 26-year-old accountant who loved to sing and had confided to his uncle that he might one day want to be prime minister of his native Caribbean island country of St. Lucia.
