Ex-cop Roy Oliver, who is white, was found guilty of murder of unarmed black teen Jordan Edwards in Balch Springs, TX, in April 2017.

Edwards was murdered as he left a house party with four other black teenagers in the Dallas suburb. He was sitting in the front passenger seat.

Oliver testified that he opened fire after the car moved towards his partner, Tyler Gross, who he feared was in danger. His partner, however, told jurors that he was not in fear of his life and did not feel a need to fire his weapon.

Prosecutors said Oliver fired into the vehicle after it passed Gross. They also said no guns were found in the teenagers’ vehicle.
