Roy Oliver: Full Story & Must-See Details On Police Officer

City fires police officer who fatally shot 15-year-old black teen

The six-year veteran was one of two officers who responded to reports of drunken teenagers at a house party Saturday, April 29. The police chief said that the vehicle was moving forward and away when shots were fired.

Oliver, who joined the police force in 2011, fatally shot Edwards as he was sitting in the passenger seat of a moving vehicle on Saturday night.

The teens were leaving a house party to which officers had been summoned to investigate possible underage drinking.

The original statement was that officers were dispatched to a Balch Springs suburb in response to an 11 p.m. 911 call that reported a handful of inebriated teenagers walking around the neighborhood.

The Dallas County district attorney and the Dallas County Sheriff's Department are continuing to investigate the case.

In his reaction, Akhilesh Yadav said he welcomes more "secular politics", and added, "I don't know what shape this will take". Mulayam Singh Yadav also said that Shivpal Yadav was right in calling prof Ram Gopal Yadav a "Shakuni".

The Edwards family told what happened next in a written statement released by Merritt Tuesday, before Oliver was sacked.

As a Sheriff's Office investigation into a deadly officer-involved shooting continues. "I acted on them", Balch Spring police chief Jonathan Haber said on Tuesday evening. "We can not make any comments at this time", Stormer wrote to the Morning News, "The incident is recent and still being investigated".

"Everyone should wait until the facts come out and we know more", she said, according to the Dallas Morning News. Haber did not detail Oliver's violations.

A family statement released Tuesday night called for disciplinary action against other officers who "extended this nightmare for those children".

Edwards' family's attorney, Lee Merritt said none of the teenagers in the auto had been drinking at the party, and they were not charged with any crimes.

Upon arrival, officers allegedly heard gunshots, then a vehicle began "backing down the street towards officers in an aggressive manner". That account of events was contradicted by the body camera footage, which Haber said showed the auto driving away from officers when Oliver shot.

Days after it was determined that Balch Springs officer Roy Oliver shot into a auto as it was moving away from him and killed 15-year-old Jordan Edwards, Oliver has been fired but not arrested for murder.

In his original report, Oliver claimed the auto was coming toward him. It is not yet clear why the shooting took place.

According to Jordan's friends, he and the other teens made a decision to leave the party as things began to get unruly.

The police didn't detail Oliver's violations, saying he is entitled to appeal his firing and that the Dallas County district attorney together with the Dallas County sheriff's office are now investigating the case.
