Mr Jean wasn't the first person shot by Ms Guyger. Guyger was trying to assist, when a struggle began with Perez. She shot another man, Uvaldo Perez, on May 12, 2017, while she was on duty. Merritt said he asked investigators with the Texas Ranger Division whether the postponement meant there was no probable cause to arrest Guyger. Guyger was not charged in the case.
Guyger was not injured in the incident and was placed on administrative leave while an investigation was launched.
Police Chief U Renee Hall said the day after the shooting that her department was seeking manslaughter charges against Ms Guyger. He was killed last week after an officer said she mistakenly entered his home, thinking it was her own.

The officer called 911 and authorities responded and took Jean to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Rawlings says Jean was a young professional who displayed leadership and was a man of faith, and that he was "exactly the sort of citizen we want to have". "We've lost a potential leader for this city for decades to come".
