She says she mistook his apartment for her home, encountered Jean, and eventually shot him.

"We're here eight days after his murder".

"I think it's unfortunate that law enforcement begin to immediately criminalize the victim - in this case, someone who was clearly was the victim that has absolutely no bearing on the fact that he was shot in his home", Lee Merritt, the Jean family's attorney, said according to Fox 4. There's no place for her.

Although the tweet still exists, the station has since changed the titled of the story to read "Lawyers "disgusted" by release search warrant showing marijuana found in Botham Jean's apartment".

A police affidavit shows that among other items, officers seized 10.4 grams of marijuana and a marijuana grinder from Jean's apartment.

Friends and family remembered Jean as a talented singer and devout Christian.

"The taint on the investigation from the beginning was exposed through that warrant and through that content".

"This is a question about her using deadly force and whether you could say, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that there is no reasonable view of what she did", said Eugene O'Donnell, a former police officer and prosecutor who is now a professor at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice.

Merritt said Friday he is more comfortable with the way the Dallas County District Attorney's Office is investigating the case.

"It was an unnecessary, tactless, black eye and quite frankly the Dallas Police Department should have sealed those warrants", Merritt said.

As some walked, a small group of protestors in cars stopped in the westbound lanes of Insterstate 30, blocking traffic with their cars. In one report on Cleveland.com, the media outlet dug up Rice's father's past convictions for abusing women and his mother's two arrests dating back to 2001.

Jean was in his apartment - one floor above - on September 6 when Amber Guyger fatally shot him. She fired when she opened the ajar door of the unit and saw a "large silhouette", which she thought was that of a burglar, according to an arrest warrant affidavit. Guyger, who does not speak during the video, was later released after posting $300,000 bond.

"On the night that he was killed the Dallas Police Department investigators were interested specifically in finding information that could help assassinate his character and that could not be probative whatsoever to the homicide investigation that should have been their utmost priority". She then called 911. "This was an intent to come after this young man's character, which is impeccable by the way".
