    There really aren't any words for this. How was she able to even enter the apartment if it wasn't hers?

    Dallas police said the officer called for help and told responding officers that "she entered the victim's apartment believing that it was her own."

    A Dallas man was killed late Thursday when a police officer returning home from her shift entered the wrong apartment in her building and eventually opened fire, authorities said.

    Details surrounding the death of Botham Shem Jean, a 26-year-old native of the Caribbean island of St. Lucia, were not immediately available early Friday.

    His mother, Allie Jean, said in a phone interview that his family was stunned to learn of his death.

    "He did no one any wrong," she said.

    Dallas police in a statement said that preliminary information suggests the officer involved called for help, and told responding officers that "she entered the victim's apartment believing that it was her own."

    The incident began just before 10 p.m. CT (11 p.m. ET) at the South Side Flats, an upscale apartment complex directly south of Dallas' downtown.

    During the encounter, the officer was in full uniform and "fired her weapon striking the victim," police said.

    Jean was taken to the hospital and died. The Dallas County Medical Examiner later released his identity.

    Was the door open or something? Dark inside perhaps? Thats the only thing that would make sense.

    Best (or worse) case scenario. She is trying to open the door. He hears her and opens it to see who is trying to get into his house. From there it gets foggy. She pulls a gun and shoots him?

    I was visiting a friend one day and she lived in an apartment complex. It was fairly good size as well.
    I have been there 100 times but one night (completely sober LOL) i walk into the wrong apartment. Door was unlocked and i even walked away to the back bedroom before i realized.
    Shit happens but these circumstances are HORRIBLE

    You didnt notice the furniture was different? Big difference between a bachelor pad and a bachelorette pad.

    Maybe he was queer
    Maybe both just moved in and didnt have any furniture
    Maybe both people bought a furniture set on clearance
    Who knows? Definitely none of us.
