    Wouldn’t blood spatters indicate whether or not he was ‘charging’ at her? Now, he had a complete legal right to charge at her, I think—but I don’t think he was.

    Between the blood splatter and the angle of the wound I think it will be pretty clear. I doubt he was "charging.". Didn't the state's OS say he was rising from a seated position?

    In the prosecutor's opening statement he said the bullet entry wound and travel showed he was in a "crouched" position as if he were midway from sitting to standing. It will be interesting to hear forensic experts testimony.

    Defense will probably try to claim he was charging her like a football player. :rolleyes:

    Like OJ perhaps? Wouldn’t put it past them to try to tie that in somehow.

    Amateur opinion and speculation

    I missed it too, if that's the case. If there was an almost 4 minute delay, what would she have been doing during that time? Wouldn't she have turned on the lights, seen that it was the wrong apt., and checked the outside of the door to see what apt she was in? She did all that during the 911 call.

    This indicates the call to 911 was made 3 minutes 44 seconds after the call to her partner ended (not 3 minutes 44 seconds after the shooting).

    Botham Jean's apartment door was unlocked when Dallas officer walked in, shot him
