DALLAS (AP) – The uncle of a 26-year-old man killed in his apartment by a Dallas police officer who said she mistook his apartment for her own says that word of his death was like “a nuke” being unleashed on their family. Botham Jean’s uncle, Ignatius Jean, said at the Thursday funeral, “Our prince royal was snatched from us by the quick-to-trigger finger of one trained to protect and serve.” He also said his nephew told him he would like to enter politics one day, maybe even becoming prime minister of his home country of St. Lucia. Off-duty police officer Amber Guyger has been charged with manslaughter and has since been released on bond. Others speaking at the funeral talked about Botham Jean’s willingness to always help anyone and the devout Christian’s love of singing.
