A Dallas Police Officer shot and killed the man after entering his unit believing it was her own, police said.

A USA police officer returning home from work shot and killed a neighbour after she said she mistook his apartment for her own, authorities said Friday (Saturday NZ time).

The officer had just finished working a full shift and was still in uniform when she entered the home of Botham Shem Jean, Sgt. Mitchell said.

Brandt Jean said his brother would have celebrated a birthday on September 29.

The officer was placed on administrative leave while the police department and district attorney's office investigate.

"Right now there are more questions than we have answers", Hall said during the press conference, as reported the by Associated Press.

Details are unclear, but what police know is that the officer shot and killed the man.

"As a result of the information above, an arrest warrant is being obtained for the officer involved in this incident". His death sparked an outpouring of support and demand for police accountability on Twitter and Facebook, including in his home country, St. Lucia, according to the Times.

Jean attended and studied accountancy at Harding University in Arkansas. He often led the singing at the university chapel.

A YouTube video posted in 2014 shows Jean making his pitch to become the university's student association president.

Sgt Mitchell did not comment on whether the officer had mistaken Jean as an intruder when she shot him. When he returned that night, he sang the song with grace and poise, as though he'd always known it.

The victim was treated on scene and taken to hospital, where he later died. Y'all had identical furniture & family photos? "Lord, keep me sane".

Jean was a black man from the island of St Lucia in the Caribbean, who went to college in Arkansas and worked for accounting firm PwC.

In a statement released to the station, the company called his death a "terrible tragedy".

"He did no one any wrong", the victim's mother Allie Jean told NBC News over-the-phone. It just feels like a nightmare. "I wish I could wake up". When authorities arrived she told them she believed her neighbor's apartment was her own.
