The report says that Amber Guyger, 30, did not arrive at the department of Both Jean to find the door ajar, but was trying to unlock it with her set of keys when she appeared there last Thursday after a shift.
Guyger, who was arrested for involuntary manslaughter three days after the murder, told police he came to the apartment to find the door ajar.
In his affidavit of arrest, the Texas Rangers write: "Guyger walked down the hallway on the fourth floor to what she thought was his apartment.

"She inserted a unique door key, with an electronic chip, into the hole in the door." The door, which was slightly ajar before the Guyger's arrival, opened completely under the force of the key insert.
When the door opened, Guyger noticed that the interior of the apartment was almost completely dark. In addition, the door that was opened alerted the plaintiff Jean about the presence of Guyger.
Believing that he had met a thief, who described himself as a large silhouette, on the other side of his apartment room; Guyger pulled out his gun, gave verbal commands that were ignored by plaintiff Jean.
As a result, Guyger fired his firearm twice hitting the Plaintiff once on the torso. Guyger then entered the apartment and immediately called 911. He requested the Police and the Emergency Medical Service (EMS) and provided first aid to the plaintiff Jean.
Due to the interior darkness of the apartment, Guyger turned on the interior lights while talking on the phone with 911. When asked where the emergency locators were, Guyger went back to the front door to look at the address and discovered he was in the wrong apartment.
"Guyger believed that she was in her apartment and confronted a thief when she fired her gun, hitting him and killing him."
She said that she deduced that there was an intruder inside and came in to see the silhouette of Botham.
The policeman stated that he issued repeated verbal commands, which he ignored, and that she shot him later.

She states that only when she turned on the lights to call 911 did she realize that she was in the wrong apartment.
Jean lived in the 1478 apartment while she lived in 1378.
The designs are identical, but his family has made holes in his claim that he could have confused his apartment with his because he had a red carpet in front of his.
The neighbors previously told their family's lawyer that before the shots, they heard a woman scream: "Let me in, let me in."
After the shots, they heard a man shout: "My God, why did you do that?"
They said those were probably Botham's final words.
The banking associate lived alone in the department. He moved to the United States from Santa Lucia to attend college and won a job at the prestigious firm PwC.
Jean, 26, moved to the United States from St. Lucia to attend college. Since then, his brother told him how he told him that he had never walked with his hands in his pockets because he was afraid he would be racially profiled in Texas because he was black.

"He told me he was a black man in Dallas, that he does not walk with his hands in his pockets.
"Just so he does not have any profile," his teenage brother Brandt told CBS this week.
Jean's mother, Allison, said she would never have sat at home in the dark.
"When he heard that his door was open, he never – and without the lights off – he would never do that.
– He was like me. He does not like darkness. "
