The shooting occurred just before 10 pm at the South Side Flats, an exclusive apartment complex in downtown Dallas.

The victim was treated at the scene and taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The authorities have not said how the officer entered Jean's house, or whether his door was unlocked or unlocked.

Sergeant Warren Mitchell told a news conference on Friday morning that they still have to interview the officer and acknowledged that there are many questions about what happened that he could not answer.

"We still have a lot to do in this investigation," he said.

"So there's a lot of information that I understand you want, but this is all we can offer you at this time," Mitchell added.

When asked if anyone else had witnessed the shooting, Warren replied, "We have not talked to anyone else at this time."

Police say that the agent was not injured and that he will be granted administrative permission during the investigation.

According to the victim's Facebook page, Jean studied accounting at Harding University in Arkansas.

He also studied at Sir Arthur Lewis Community College in his home country, Saint Lucia, says his Facebook.

Family members have taken Facebook to mourn the loss of Jean.

Earl Jean, who is believed to be his uncle, wrote: "My heart goes with you, boy … I never thought that this day would come."

He added: & # 39; I'm lost by the words … a part of me is gone! & # 39;

Earl's words have been received with a lot of support and calls to "justice".
