What Works Week 3: Dallas officer Amber Guyger charged with manslaughter after killing neighbor in his apartment

Headline: Dallas officer Amber Guyger charged with manslaughter after killing neighbor in his apartment

This article from USA Today details the events and aftermath of a police shooting that took place Thursday. The officer Amber Guyger was arrested and charged with manslaughter Sunday after she reportedly accidentally walked into the wrong apartment and shot Bothan Jean.

This covers a very heated and conflicted topic in it being an officer involved shooting of a black man but its is even more controversial being that he was inside his own house.

USA Today does a good job of tracking down reputable and quality sources from the mother to the Dallas Mayor. It also does a good job of answering some of the important question like how much her bond was, if she is still in jail, who is doing the investigation, etc.

Some of the questions that are still left unanswered is what happened inside the apartment and how did she walk into the wrong apartment. She would have essentially had to break into the apartment to have gained interest and then to shot the resident is crazy to me and almost seems like an excuse versus what actually happened.
