Noise complaints preceded the incident in which a Dallas cop shot and killed a black man in his own apartment.

Amber Guyger, 30, had just finished a 15-hour shift when she claims to have accidentally approached the wrong apartment, where she found her door ajar and shot at a “large silhouette” that turned out to be her neighbor, a successful young man named Botham Jean, whom she killed.

Guyger has been charged with manslaughter, but an attorney for her victim has pointed to several inconsistencies, including neighbors saying they heard a female knocking and shouting “let me in” before the killing.

The attorney for the victim, S. Lee Meritt, appeared on CNN Tuesday where he was asked by host Brooke Baldwin whether there was any connection between the two.

“The only connection we have been able to make is that she was his immediate downstairs neighbor,” Meritt said. “And there were noise complaints from the immediate downstairs neighbors about whoever was upstairs, and that would have been Botham. In fact, there were noise complaints that very day about upstairs activity in Botham’s apartment. Botham received a phone call about noise coming from his apartment from the downstairs neighbor.”

"I can confirm that [Russia's] campaign of misinformation and propaganda and interference is bigger, is broader and is more problematic than it was in 2016," Murphy told CNN's Jim Sciutto. "The Russians this time around have decided to cultivate U.S. citizens as assets. They are attempting to spread their propaganda in the mainstream media."

‘Bad politics’: CNN reporter stunned Trump is finishing the campaign by attacking Dr. Fauci

Published

on

President Donald Trump on Monday spent much of his day attacking the nation's top infectious disease expert even as the seven-day average for new COVID-19 cases in the United States surged past 55,000 a day.

CNN reporter Abby Phillip said on Tuesday that she couldn't make any sense of why the president is publicly feuding with Fauci with just two weeks left in the 2020 presidential election.

Phillip started out by noting how hard Fauci has worked to try to remain apolitical even as the president has routinely attacked him and disparaged his advice.
