Dallas Police Chief Renee Hall said Saturday that a warrant for the officer has been put on hold by the Rangers as they investigate.

Hall said police aren't handling the case under the department's usual officer-involved shooting protocol. Her apartment was not on the same floor as Jean's.

A police spokeswoman, Debra Webb, said she did not have further information on the case, including when the officer would be booked into jail. Dallas Fire Rescue also responded and took Mr. Jean to the hospital where he later died.

No arrest warrant had been issued for Guyger by Sunday. ("This is an global story as well because we're an worldwide city", he said.) He also reported speaking with Gov. Greg Abbott, who gave assurances that the Texas Rangers would deliver a transparent, independent investigation and "justice will be served in the long run". "It just feels like a nightmare", Allison told NBC News.

"This family is frustrated".

When Botham Jean was born in 1991, his mother said, "God gave me an angel". He described Jean as an "amazing individual" and said that "if the grand jury deems necessary, this officer should have to answer for her actions in a court of law in Dallas County".

"She took my life away, like my very own life", Allison said of the officer.

The white patrol officer has not been identified, but her name will be released when she is formally charged, Hall told reporters. She was not injured.

"Somebody has to be insane not to realize that they walked into the wrong apartment", Allie Jean said. "Based on that interview with the officer, they asked us to hold off on the warrant until they had the opportunity to investigate some of the information that was provided during that interview", she said.

"At the very early stages of this investigation - initial indications were that they were what we consider circumstances of an officer-involved shooting", Hall said.

"There is so much rhetoric surrounding this incident".

His uncle, Ignatius Jean, said the killing has devastated the family and left it searching for answers.

It's unclear what "the interaction was between her and the victim". On the night of his death, she thought he was out with friends.

Botham Jean grew up in St. Lucia, a Caribbean island country.

Former classmates from Harding University told the that he was known for his deep faith and his handsome singing voice.

Jean was pronounced dead at Baylor University Medical Center. He was a dedicated Christian, often leading chapel while he was in college. Jean was excited about singing it, though he had not heard of the song.

She allegedly mistook him for an intruder and killed him.

"He shared it with was a truly special moment", McLarty said.

Police in Texas have identified the officer accused of fatally shooting a man after entering his apartment, allegedly mistakenly believing it to have been her own.

Many questions remain about what led Guyger to shoot Jean.

Jean worked at PricewaterhouseCoopers in Dallas, an worldwide company that does assurance, tax and advisory work for companies around the world.

Emory Tease, an elderly in the church, said he could not fathom not hearing Jean's voice again. Those accounts were essentially confirmed by the attorney representing the family of Jean, a native of Saint Lucia who came to the United States to study accounting and later obtained a job in risk assessment for a major company.
