Another search warrant allowed investigators to collect communications from property management connected to the shooting and seize the logs from access doors and gates and an elevator access door lock as well as a lock audit report for each of their apartments, the WFAA story stated. A small amount of marijuana was reportedly turned up, which is now being used in an apparent smear campaign by local authorities working with the local Fox News station to seemingly take the heat off of the Dallas Police Department.

This is an attack on an innocent man who was killed by a cop for simply existing in his own home.

But experts on police training and psychologists are split on the credibility of Officer Amber Guyger's story.

Guyger was charged with manslaughter on Sunday before being released on a $300,000 bond. A 4-year veteran of the force, Officer Amber Guyger had just ended a 15-hour shift when she claims she accidentally went to the fourth floor of the apartment building where she lives instead of the third.

Religious leaders from the Dallas area say they are outraged and saddened by Jean's death.


"To have my son smeared in such a way, I think shows that there are people who are really nasty, who are really dirty and are going to cover up for the devil Amber Guyger", Allison Jean said. "This was an intent to come after this young man's character, which is impeccable by the way".

Merritt said the witnesses are sisters who live at the apartment complex. But if we're looking for explanations and complexity, why have the Dallas police not released information regarding warrants to search Guyger's apartment, or even revealed whether they sought one?

"The Dallas Police Department investigators were interested specifically in finding information that could help assassinate his character", attorney Lee Merritt told reporters. A judge authorized police to search for guns, fired cartridge casings, trace evidence such as blood, video surveillance and also "any contraband, such as narcotics", according to the affidavit for a search warrant, which the Fort Worth Star-Telegram posted online. They include whether Guyger was under the influence of alcohol or drugs, her level of fatigue, any history of emotional or medical problems, or any history she may have had with Jean, though initial reports suggested the two did not know each other. "I need to go protect myself, '" Whalen said.

The attorneys also called for Guyger's firing.
