Former Dallas police officer Amber Guyger, who killed her neighbor in his own home, was found guilty of murder early this morning.
The shooting occurred in September 2018, and after a year, the jury finally reached a verdict.
Guyger, who is white, entered the wrong home after mistaking it for her own when she shot her black neighbor, Botham Jean.
The Jean’s family lawyer, Benjamin Crump, says this verdict was for so many unarmed black and brown human beings.
The jury deliberated for less than 24 hours. Guyger could face up to life in prison.
