Officer Roy Oliver Will Be Charged with Murder in Jordan Edwards Killing

Balch Springs Officer Roy Oliver will be charged with murder in the shooting death of 15-year-old honor student Jordan Edwards.

“Police originally said that the car was backing towards officers before the shooting, though Oliver was fired Tuesday for violating policies after the department viewed body camera footage from the night,” the NY Daily News reports.

A judge signed a murder warrant for the officer Friday afternoon, the Dallas Morning News reported. As of early evening, Oliver had not yet been arrested.
