(NBC News) Dallas police said Friday they are seeking a warrant for manslaughter against one of their own after an off-duty officer entered the wrong apartment in her building and killed a man who was inside.

Investigators are “working as vigorously and meticulously as we can to ensure the integrity of this case and ensure the integrity of the department is upheld,” Hall said. She said the officer, who was off-duty at the time of the shooting, would be identified pending any charges.

Dallas police in a statement said that preliminary information suggests the officer involved called 911, and told responding officers that “she entered the victim’s apartment believing that it was her own.”
