Dallas Police Accused Of Smearing Man Killed By Cop In His Own Apartment


Last Updated Sep 13, 2018 10:18 PM EDT

An attorney for the family of a man shot dead by a police officer in the man's own apartment said a police affidavit shows investigators immediately sought evidence to discredit the victim. "They immediately began looking to smear him," said Lee Merritt, who represents the family of Botham Jean, who was shot dead in his own Dallas apartment Sept. 6.

Officer Amber Guyger, who shot him, said she mistook his apartment for her own and thought he was an intruder.

A police affidavit shows that officers seized, among other items, 10.4 grams of marijuana and a marijuana grinder from Jean's apartment. Merritt said the search warrant showed investigators were immediately looking for drug paraphernalia, CBS Dallas / Fort Worth reports.

Guyger is charged with manslaughter and remains free on $300,000 bond.
