  • Off-duty Texas police officer shoots man after mistaking apartment as her own

A police officer in the U.S. state of Texas has shot and killed a man in a flat after mistakenly thinking she was in her own unit, police say.

Police issued a news release Friday saying the shooting happened Thursday night at an apartment complex at 1210 South Lamar. Officials say the officer was heading home after working a full shift when the mistake happened.

It's unclear, however, how the officer managed to confuse the two apartments and why she apparently fired her weapon at the man.

The responding officers administered first aid to the victim, whom the Dallas County medical examiner's office identified as 26-year-old Botham Jean. Jean was transported to an area hospital, where he died from his injuries.

One of America's most prominent sex symbols, he was known for posing nude in Cosmopolitan magazine in 1972. Years later, with a mustache gone gray, he suffered from health issues that included open heart surgery.

She entered the victim's apartment, allegedly believing that it was hers, and fatally shot a 26-year-old man inside. Police say the officer explained that she had mistakenly entered Jean's home, thinking it was hers.

A blood sample was drawn from the officer to test for alcohol and drugs.

Hall said the officer is white, but she didn't say whether investigators believe race was a factor in the shooting.

Hall also said the Texas Rangers will conduct an independent investigation of the incident. The officer was not hurt in the shooting and has been placed on leave while the shooting is investigated.

Mr Jones constantly interrupted Senator Marco Rubio as the Senator was trying to answer journalists' questions. Jones called Rubio a "frat boy", while Rubio insisted he didn't know who Jones was, FoxNews.com said.

"Right now there are more questions than we have answers", Hall said, adding that she spoke to Jean's sister to express the department's condolences to the family.

Residents of the apartment complex said they can access their units with a key or through a keypad code. She called 911 afterward, police said.

Jean was a native of the Caribbean island nation of Saint Lucia and the son of the island's former permanent secretary, according to a Friday morning post from the St. Lucia Times.
