Dallas' police chief, U Renee Hall, revealed yesterday that her department was seeking to charge the officer with manslaughter. "In doing so, we hope to bring understanding to the family".
Jean, who grew up on the Caribbean Island of St Lucia and worked as a PricewaterhouseCoopers associate, was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.
"How can you make a mistake like that, getting into someone else's apartment?" said 80-year-old Raquel, a resident who declined to give her last name. "God gave me an angel". The family, however, wants to see resolution.
Jean's mother, Allison, suggested in an interview on Friday that her son might still be alive if he was white.
The white police officer who shot and killed a Black man Thursday, after mistakenly entering his apartment, continued to walk free on Sunday, despite the Dallas police chief calling for a manslaughter warrant for her arrest. ("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 still isn't clear what charges will be laid against the officer who has been placed on administrative leave, as the "Texas Rangers made the decision to postpone pursuing a warrant, until they could follow up on information that they received from the interview with the officer".
As a result of the information above, an arrest warrant is being obtained for the officer involved in this incident.
"If there is probable cause that a crime has been committed in this jurisdiction, it is incumbent upon law enforcement, and in particular the district attorney's office, to issue a warrant for the arrest of the officer involved", attorney Lee Merritt said following a vigil at Dallas West Church of Christ, NBC News reported. Merritt questioned whether Guyger was receiving preferential treatment.
"This family is frustrated".

A Labour activist who claimed criticism of antisemitism in the party was a "conspiracy" has been re-elected to its ruling body. Shadow chancellor John McDonnell said he hoped the party's National Executive Committee would adopt all the examples.
Jean, 26, was a beloved person known for his church involvement, leadership on campus, smile, and friendly demeanor.
Sgt. Mike Mata, who heads Dallas' largest police union, the Dallas Police Association, called Saturday for an "open, transparent and full investigation of the event, the Dallas Morning News reported". In doing so, she sidelined the unit of experienced homicide investigators that handle shootings involving Dallas police officers.
"She took my life away, like my very own life", his mother says. "This is an unacceptable way for Dallas to represent itself to the world".
The police chief said it isn't clear what "the interaction was between her and the victim".
Authorities have said the officer is white, but have not released her name or other details about her. Botham loved mankind. Botham never saw color, race. "He wanted all of us to unite, to be together". Responding officers administered aid to the victim, a 26-year-old male, at the scene.
"This is a awful tragedy", Jean's employer said. But the young man didn't think that was enough. "Can't we all just get along?"
In the May 2017 incident, Guyger was trying to identify a woman in a vehicle when another passenger got out and took her taser, police said in the release.
We ask that you work alongside us as we move through this process. It's left those that loved him with many questions and few answers. "From everything we've heard, we're not sure exactly what happened".
