A police officer in Dallas shot and killed a man she thought was in her apartment — only, it wasn't actually her apartment, authorities said. After her shift ended Thursday night, the officer mistakenly entered the wrong apartment, Dallas Police Chief Renee Hall told reporters on Friday afternoon. The man who lived there — identified as 26-year-old Botham Shem Jean — was home when the officer entered; while it's unclear exactly what happened between Jean and the officer, Hall said, but the officer fired her weapon. The officer called 911, and Dallas Fire Rescue rushed the man to the hospital. He died shortly after. FULL STORY WASHINGTON POST
