Nearly one month after Amber Guyger shot and killed Botham Jean, the Dallas Police Department has fired Guyger.

Guyger was fired on Monday, weeks after she shot and killed 26-year-old Jean inside his apartment on September 6th. Court records say that Guyger said she believed she had encountered a burglar inside her own home. However, she was at the wrong apartment on a different floor of her apartment complex.

Guyger was arrested on a manslaughter charge days after the shooting. She has since posted bond.
