Dallas Police Refuse To Release Officer Amber Guyger’s 911 Call After She Killed Botham Jean
The Dallas Police Department and Dallas County district attorney’s office are asking Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton to allow them to conceal evidence from the public, including the 911 call made by Dallas police Officer Amber Guyger after she fatally shot Botham Jean in his apartment on Sept. 6.
Assistant City Attorney Pavala Armstrong claims that releasing the information would interfere with the investigation into the shooting, which involves no one else but Guyger and Jean, notes The Dallas Morning News.
Armstrong also claimed that disclosing more information would be “an unwanted invasion of personal privacy” and would be “highly intimate or embarrassing and of no legitimate concern to the public.”
Guyger claims that she mistook Jean’s apartment for her own and thought he was a burglar. She has been charged with manslaughter.
