Lawyer condemns search showing Marijuana was found in Botham Jean's Apartment

Many of them still have questions about the circumstances that lead a Dallas Police officer to shoot and kill the man inside his own downtown Dallas apartment one week ago.

Hundreds of friends, loved ones and work colleagues of a 26-year-old man shot to death by a Dallas police officer in his own apartment filled a Texas church Thursday to celebrate his life and condemn the actions that "snatched" him in his prime. The headline, which has since been changed, highlighted the marijuana in the search warrant affidavit without mentioning any other items that were seized from Jean's apartment.

Also found in the search, according to a search warrant affidavit: two bullet casings, a police backpack, a lunch box, laptop computer, metal marijuana grinder, two electronic keys and two used packages of medical aid.

Guyger has been charged with manslaughter.

A funeral service is planned for Thursday at a church in suburban Dallas. "One said 'that Bo's smile was contagious and you could not be unhappy in his presence.' One said, 'Bo encompassed the best in humanity in a smile, in a hug, and with his friendship.' And several said, 'Bo was somebody I could look up to.' And one summed it up best listening to the words today: 'Bo always looked for the best in situations and in people'".

There have been several warrants signed by judges and executed in this case aside from the arrest warrant for Guyger and the search warrant signed September 7 that were returned to the court on Wednesday.

"I think it's unfortunate that law enforcement begin to immediately criminalize the victim - in this case, someone who was clearly was the victim that has absolutely no bearing on the fact that he was shot in his home", Lee Merritt, attorney for Jean's family, told Fox 4.

The affidavit says that Jean was home alone when a uniformed Guyger, who had just ended her shift, arrived at the complex and parked on its fourth floor, which corresponds to the floor Jean lived on, not Guyger. I haven't seen any of those.

"To see the common assassination attempt on the victim that we often see in law enforcement involved shootings", he added.

It is not clear what, if any, search warrants have been executed on Guyger's property.

She was being held on $300,000 bail, but she was able to post that amount and was being released. When she was able to open the door, she saw the interior was nearly completely dark.

Mourners console each other during the public viewing before the funeral of Botham Shem Jean at the Greenville Avenue Church of Christ in Richardson, Texas.

Heartbreaking first photos from inside the victim's apartment show leftover food and materials he had been reading when he was shot to death.

"To hear that his door was open, he would never have the lights off, he would never do that", said Allisa Jean, Botham's sister. There's a bowl of cereal on the ottoman and a lone flip-flop on the floor. On the couch, a large stack of pillows and blankets. One account says a conflict started at the door of Jean's apartment. "I didn't find anything that provided any clarity". "She didn't claim she had gone somewhere because she thought there was some sort of criminal activity".
