He was later pronounced dead at the hospital, and Jean was charged with manslaughter & released on $300,000 bail.
Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings shared a message about the shooting saying:
"I want to thank the Texas Rangers for thoroughly investigating this tragic case from the moment the Dallas Police Department requested that they take over on Friday morning. I am grateful to Dallas Police Chief Renee Hall for her leadership and foresight in calling for the Rangers to handle the investigation to ensure there no appearance of bias. I also greatly appreciate that our citizens and community leaders were so respectful of the investigative process over these past few days."
