    I mean, I get maybe walking in the wrong apartment, but how do you not immediately recognize it's not yours when someone else's shit is all over the place?

    She had to have been fucked up. No other explanation unless it was premeditated.

    There’s no way she wasn’t drunk. Assuming the front door was unlocked and she just walked right in?

    I believe it was locked (and her keys obviously weren't working) and she said "Police! Open up!" To which the victim did. Then I'm not sure what happened aside from her killing him.

    The fact that she shouted “open up” means she expected someone to open the door. She then shot the person that opened the door. I don’t know Texas laws (and I’m too lazy to look it up) but that sounds like murder to me.

    If I were her I would have simply entered the correct apartment and not discharged a firearm, entirely avoiding the situation in which I shoot an innocent person.

    There’s a lot of folks in here who just don’t understand the way it is to be a police officer in Dallas where you are trained to shoot the first black person you see.

    I accidentally got off one floor lower than my apartment the other day. When my key didn’t work, I looked up, noticed the different apartment number, and recognized my gaffe. Thankfully I didn’t murder anyone in cold blood.

    As any respectable college freshman can attest, it's very common to accidentally enter and pass out in someone else's dorm room.

    Was she a shitfaced college freshman cop?

    My friends and I were walking back to their dorm room to grab foood while playing poker in the multi use room on our floor. He left the door unlocked because his roommate left his keys. We walked in and their was a naked girl in his bed. We just figured his roommate got lucky and went back to playing poker. His roommate walked in where we were playing poker and asked if we knew anything about this naked chick in thier bedroom. We go in their and ask her some questions and turns out she is drunk as fuck, had peed in his bed. We gave her a shirt to wear and she argued the whole time she in the right room. She went to use the restroom from her boyfriend's room and ended up going up a floor somehow and getting into back into my friends dorm room.

    Long story short. We didn't shoot her and she didn't shoot us.

    I too have accidentally walked into the wrong apartment (in my situation, I only went up two flights instead of three). Door was open, walked in, noticed shit looked different, and quietly backed away. I do not recall if I murdered anyone in the process, but I never heard anything about it. /csh

    When the bears were in the nfc title game against the saints I was so drunk I went outside then came back in to the wrong side of a condo. Burst in to a young couple playing with their baby on the floor. I would have shot me

    Had a buddy who stumbled home blackout drunk. Couldn’t figure out why his apartment key wouldn’t work, opened his bedroom window and fell in and passed out on floor. Awoke to an off duty cop shouting at him with weapon drawn. He climbed into the wrong apartment and it was the cop’s young son’s room. Luckily the guy was relatively calm and my buddy stayed alive. /coolstorybro

    Clearly a case of stand your ground. If you can't go into the wrong apartment and shoot someone who resides there... well I certainly don't want to live in such a country

    I won't be shocked if the Officer says the victim became the aggressor. A lot of problems with that fact pattern......Victim didn't have a duty to retreat. Officer wasn't acting as an officer.....Officer was involved in unlawful activity. But it may explain if they go with manslaughter over murder 2.
