The off-duty officer told the dispatcher that she was "f*****" and "so tired."
The frantic 911 call from the Dallas cop who says she shot her neighbor when she went to the wrong apartment has been released.
“I'm an off-duty officer. I thought I was in my apartment and I shot a guy thinking that he was … thinking it was my apartment,” Dallas police officer Amber Guyger told the 911 operator in the 2018 shooting.
“You shot someone?” the operator asks.
“Yes. I thought it was my apartment. I'm f*****. Oh my god. I'm sorry,” Guyger says.
Guyger says "I thought it was my apartment" 18 times in the nearly 6-minute call.
“I'm going to lose my job. I thought it was my apartment,” she said.
Guyger lived on the third floor while the victim on the fourth.
In the call, obtained exclusively by WFAA-TV in Dallas, she can heard talking to the man she just shot in his own home, 26-year-old accountant Botham Jean.
“Hey, bud. Hey, bud, they're coming, they're gonna ... I'm sorry, man,” she says to the victim.
“Where was he shot?” the operator asks.
“He's on the top ... top left,” she replies.
She is asked if she's with the Dallas Police Department, to which she answers yes.
“Oh my God. I'm done. I didn't mean to. I didn't mean to. I didn't mean to. I'm so sorry. Hey bud,” Guyger says.
Guyger seemed to be trying to figure out exactly what just happened and is heard constantly asking herself how she did it.
Then, first responders arrived and she explained who she was.
“I'm off duty! I'm off duty!” she says. “I thought they were in my apartment. I thought this was my floor.”
Jean died in the hospital. His death prompted protests on the streets of Dallas.
Guyger was fired two weeks after the shooting and is awaiting trial on a murder charge. She has pleaded not guilty.
