Amber Guyger, former police officer who killed man in his own apartment, found guilty of murder

GATESVILLE, TX — Former Dallas police officer Amber Guyger who was convicted of murder last week is being held in Gatesville.

Guyger, 31, was sent to Mountain View on Friday.

Guyger shot and killed Jean as he sat in his apartment on Sept. 6, 2018. Guyger lived in the same apartment complex at the time and said she mistakenly entered Jean's apartment, thinking it was hers.

During the trial, Guyger testified that she entered the apartment with her gun drawn with the intent to "eliminate' what she thought was an intruder. Guyger's lawyers argued, "stand your ground" laws applied in the case.

Guyger also apologized during the trial, saying she has asked God for forgiveness and regretted the incident.
