A USA police officer returning home from work shot and killed a neighbour after she said she mistook his apartment for her own, authorities said Friday (Saturday NZ time).

The officer was in full uniform when the shooting happened just after 10 p.m. Thursday in the 1200 block of South Lamar, about a quarter-mile from the Dallas Police Department.

A police officer in the U.S. state of Texas has shot and killed a man in a flat after mistakenly thinking she was in her own unit, police say.

A female Dallas police officer has been arrested and facing charges of manslaughter after killing a 26-year-old man in a very peculiar case of mistaken identity.

She will be placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation, police said. When the situation became clearer, Hall chose to press charges on the officer.

I've spoken with the family expressed my condolences and reassured them that we are working diligently and that we have invited an outside agency to investigate.

Authorities haven't said how the officer got into Jean's home, or whether his door was open or unlocked.

"Right now there are more questions than answers", Hall said.

The man was rushed to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead, authorities said.

Allie Jean reacted with shock and dismay when she heard the news of her son's violent death inside his own apartment.

Hall said that police initially thought it was an officer-involved shooting, and enacted protocol as such. He had graduated from a private Christian college in Arkansas in 2016 and had since been working for a major accounting firm in Dallas.

It was unclear initially how the officer entered Jean's home, or why she mistook it for her own residence.

"How can this nasty world take you away from me.this is the worst day of my life thus far.uncle loves you so much", he wrote.

In a statement released to the station, the company called his death a "terrible tragedy".
