Heavy gray storm clouds lingered over downtown Dallas on Friday night as about 150 people gathered in front of the Dallas Police Department headquarters for a vigil honoring Botham Shem Jean, 26, killed by an off-duty Dallas police officer after the officer attempted to enter his apartment, believing it to be her own, according to statements from DPD. In front of a makeshift memorial in front of Dallas police headquarters, the group demanded police immediately arrest the as-yet unnamed officer, who faces a charge of manslaughter, according to Dallas Police Chief U. Renee Hall.
