iStock/Thinkstock(DALLAS) — A Dallas police officer charged with manslaughter in the wrong apartment fatal shooting of a man was fired Monday morning, according to an email sent by Police Chief Rene Hall. Officer Amber Guyger, 30, “engaged in adverse conduct” when she fatally shot Botham Jean, 26, at his apartment on the night of Sept. 6, Hall said in her email.Hall said her decision to fire Guyger was made after an internal affairs investigation concluded on Sept. 9. “Officer Guyger was terminated for her actions,” Hall said in her email.She said Guyger, who was hired by the police force in November 2013, has a right under civil service rules to appeal her discipline, Hall said.Guyger’s dismissal came just 10 days after Jean held a news conference and called for Guyger to be fired immediately.Lee Merritt, an attorney for the Jean family, said Hall spoke with the victim’s family and attorneys in a conference call on Sunday to tell them she intended to fire Guyger and explained why there was a delay in the action.“Specifically she explained that a premature administrative suspension could have possibly implicated Guyger’s fifth amendment protections and compromised the criminal prosecution,” Merritt said. “The Jean family expressed satisfaction in this explanation and in Guyger’s termination.” He described the move by Hall “as an initial victory,” noting that the decision was announced on the same day Botham Jean was buried in his native country, the Caribbean island of St. Lucia.“However, we are committed to seeing through the next steps of the process of a proper murder indictment, conviction and appropriate sentencing,” Merritt said. Merritt said his office is conducting a parallel investigation of the shooting and is preparing to file a wrongful death civil lawsuit against Guyger and City of Dallas.ABC News had reached out to Guyger’s lawyer for comment but he has yet to respond.Jean — who worked at PricewaterhouseCoopers, a multinational professional services firm with an office in Dallas — was killed when Guyger mistook his apartment for her own and shot him when she opened the ajar door of the unit and saw a “large silhouette” that she thought was a burglar, according to an arrest warrant affidavit. Guyger was arrested and charged with manslaughter three days after the shooting but Dallas County District Attorney Faith Johnson said a grand jury will decide the ultimate charge. She has not ruled out seeking a murder indictment.Earlier this month, Kaufman County Sheriff’s Office released video of Guyger behind bars in handcuffs and jail attire. She does not speak during the video and was later released after posting $300,000 bond.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
FIFA Secretary General Jérôme Valcke was joined by Brazilian Minister of Sport Aldo Rebelo and Brazil 2014 Organising Committee (LOC) Management Board member Ronaldo in Cuiaba on Wednesday, as he witnessed the roll-out of a “FIFA 11 For Health” project with 24 students from the Maria Ambrosio Pommot Municipal School.It proved to be quite an occasion for the more than 300 children looking on, who were thrilled to be in the presence of the legendary striker, part of the Brazil side that clinched the country’s fifth world crown.“I am very happy to see the World Cup legacy reach out to more than 4,000 children in Brazil through the ‘11 For Health’ programme,” Valcke said. “It’s very rewarding to see these youngsters having fun as they learn about health and citizenship through football.”The “FIFA 11 For Health” programme, which was created by the world football’s governing body and launched during the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™, is being implemented at 121 elementary schools in Brazil 2014’s 12 Host Cities. The children taking part are aged between 11 and 12.“This project was created by FIFA with the idea of using football as a tool for getting important health messages across to children,” explained Andre Pedrinelli, one of the LOC’s medical supervisors. “We’ve seen in our pilot project in Curitiba that the message has got through to some 40 percent of children, which is a very positive number.”“This project is a challenge because of the size and diversity of our country, but it’s also a source of great joy because it promotes some very important values to children,” Manoel Flores said, who is heading up the project for the Brazilian Football Association (CBF). “I am sure that this will be one of the finest legacies of the World Cup.”Aside from FIFA, the LOC and the CBF, the participation and commitment of the local authorities and the Brazilian Ministry of Sport are also essential to the success of the programme. “The 11 local schools involved in the project, which is so important for football and health, are represented at this symbolic event,” commented the Mayor of Cuiaba Mauro Mendes, who was joined by the Governor of Mato Grosso Silval Barbosa in welcoming the delegation to the school.FIFA World Cup partners Johnson & Johnson are supporting FIFA by promoting the importance of healthy habits through the “FIFA 11 For Health” programme. The company has taken upon itself to provide a significant amount of material for all the schools involved in the programme, including shirts for instructors and bibs, balls and posters for the children, which they can take home with them to spread the message to other people. This is just one of the many aspects of the extensive health campaign that Johnson & Johnson is running as part of its commercial partnership with the FIFA World Cup.

Former Uttar Pradesh MP and strongman Ateeq Ahmad was Monday transferred to high-security Sabarmati central jail here in Gujarat from the Naini jail in Uttar Pradesh on directions of the Supreme Court, an official said. Ahmad was brought to Ahmedabad from Varanasi on a flight in the morning, they said. Ahmad’s son Umar, who was also on the flight, said: “My father was brought here through a flight from Varanasi. He was taken to Sabarmati jail from the airport.” In April, the Supreme Court had ordered shifting of of the former MP to the Sabarmati jail from the Naini central jail where he was lodged for kidnapping and assaulting a businessman in the Deoria prison. The SC order came after businessman Mohit Jaiswal had filed an FIR in December last year alleging that he was kidnapped from Lucknow and taken to the prison where he was assaulted by the jailed don and his aides and was forced to transfer his business to them.
