Hundreds packed a Texas church Thursday to mourn a young immigrant man shot dead in his own home by a Dallas cop who claimed she mistakenly entered the wrong apartment. The memorial service for Botham Jean, who was black, took place one week after a white officer, Amber Guyger, walked into his apartment, apparently thinking it was her own. The 26-year-old man, originally from the Caribbean nation of Saint Lucia, was remembered in the three-hour memorial service as a pious and positive person, ambitious in his endeavors and a beloved member of the Dallas community he had adopted as his own.
