The mother of a black man who was shot and killed inside his home by a white Dallas police officer who said she mistook the apartment for her own has suggested that her son might still be alive if he were white.

The Texas Rangers took over the investigation from the Dallas Police Department to "eliminate the appearance of any potential bias", the police said Saturday. Her bond is set at $300,000. The Dallas Police Department will continue to update you as we're updated by the Texas Rangers, but they are the lead in that investigation right now and we're waiting on them to give us some additional information.

The footage shows a female cop crying into her phone on a walkway of the Dallas apartment block seconds before 26-year-old Botham Jean is pulled past on a trolley as medics desperately try to revive him. The legal team as not yet released a statement on her arrest.

Dallas police identified the officer as Amber Guyger, a four-year veteran of the department assigned to the Southeast Patrol Division.

Some protesters carried signs with the names of other black men who have also been killed by police.

According to a police officer via Dallas News Guyger is "devastated" and "she is so, so sorry for this family". The family asked that Jean be remembered as a youth pastor, singer and good friend and family member - and not as the focus of speculation or political agendas, the station reported.

Guyger also shot another man past year, according to court documents. Guyger, a five-year officer, shot a suspect during an arrest in 2017 but was cleared of wrongdoing. An affidavit indicates a man identified as Uvaldo Perez got out of a vehicle and became combative with Guyger and another officer. 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. The department had requested a warrant on Friday.

"Botham loved mankind", Jean's mother, Allison said Saturday. Guyger fired her Taser at Perez, who then took her Taser from her. Guyger pulled her gun and fired, wounding Perez in the abdomen.

"I didn't know she was white until now", Jean said. The woman was in a auto with Perez and when police arrived, Perez left the vehicle and confronted the officers, police said. He was then taken to a local hospital, where he later died, the police chief said.

"We want to make sure everything is transparent and above board", the mayor added, after praising Jean for being a church-going, young professional who is "exactly the sort of citizen we want to have in this city". He described Mr Jean as an "amazing individual" and said that "if the grand jury deems necessary, this officer should have to answer for her actions in a court of law in Dallas County".

"This world has lost a light in the dark", Ray said of his colleague's death. "But in Jesus Christ, there is unity and there is hope, and I'm going to see him again with my Lord in heaven". "You have to grapple with reality".

Mr Jean is due to be buried on his native St. Lucia on Thursday.

"We know there have been calls for peace, but peace does not come without justice", Mokuria said.
