Dallas police officer Amber Guyger was sacked after an investigation determined she "engaged in adverse conduct when she was arrested for manslaughter" in the killing of her black neighbor, officials told FOX News.

Dallas Police Chief Reneé Hall issued a statement Friday explaining why no disciplinary action has been taken against Guyger.

The entire episode started the night of September 6 when Guyger entered Jean's apartment, purportedly confusing his for hers and shooting him because she thought he was a burglar. Dallas PD says they determined Guyger engaged in "adverse conduct" - and she was officially fired Monday morning.

Police Chief U. Renee Hall said at a town hall Tuesday she couldn't fire Guyger before an internal investigation.

Guyger was arrested for the death of her neighbor, Botham Jean.

The Dallas Police Department on Monday fired one of its officers who fatally shot an unarmed black man in his own apartment earlier this month.

The video shows Guyger in handcuffs and dressed in an orange jail uniform on Sunday at the Kaufman county jail. "Don't they train police?" In the interim, an attorney for Jean's family voiced concern that she was getting preferential treatment as a law enforcement officer. "There are civil service laws we have to adhere to".

Guyger's case is expected to go to a grand jury.

Police arrested Guyger three days later.
