Protesters marched outside the Dallas Cowboys’ stadium to demand the police officer who shot dead Botham Jean be fired and charged with murder.

Some of the  demonstrators rolled empty coffins as they marched outside AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, ahead of Sunday’s Cowboys game to protest recent fatal police shootings.

Protesters are demanding Dallas police officer Amber Guyger be fired and charged with murder instead of manslaughter for Botham Jean's (picturd) death   Guyger, who is white, shot the 26-year-old, who was black and her neighbor, at his apartment on September 6

Jean and O’Shae Terry were both fatally shot by police in North Texas earlier this month.

Attorney Lee Merritt, who represents Jean’s family, said protesters are demanding that Dallas police officer Amber Guyger be fired and charged with murder instead of manslaughter for Jean’s death.

Guyger, who is white, shot the 26-year-old, who was black and her neighbor, at his apartment on September 6.

The officer told investigators that she mistook Jean’s apartment for her own and thought she was being burglarized.

The protest outside the stadium, where the Cowboys hosted the New York Giants, was the latest since Jean’s death.

There also have been demonstrations outside Dallas police headquarters and at a City Council meeting.
