Texas Castle Doctrine factors into jury deliberations for Amber Guyger Re Killing of Botham Jean

 The Texas Tribune The shooting sparked outrage across the country, as many called it another example of a white police officer killing an unarmed black man. Defence attorneys have said there is no evidence to suggest the shooting was racially motivated.

Guyger, 31, testified Friday that she mistook Jean's fourth-floor apartment for her own, one floor below Jean's. Guyger, who was off duty but still in uniform, said she thought he was a burglar. Guyger had just completed a nearly 14-hour work shift. She tested negative for drugs and alcohol.
