Ashuntae Coleman, 14, is consoled by De'Juan Johnson, 15, during the "Remember His Name: Vigil for Jordan Edwards" candlelight vigil at Virgil T. Irwin Park on Thursday in Balch Springs. Edwards was a 15-year-old freshman at Mesquite High School, who was shot and killed by a Balch Springs Police Officer as Edwards and his friends were leaving a party on Saturday. Roy Oliver, the officer who shot Edwards was terminated from the Balch Springs Police Department following the shooting. Coleman and Edwards were lifelong friends since elementary school.

#RoyOliver, 37, fired a rifle into a car that was driving away from a party in the #Dallas suburb of #BalchSprings in April, killing #JordanEdwards, 15.

His lawyer has not commented. No date has been set for the trial.

The #policeman was sacked a few days later for #policyviolations.

The death occurred when police responded to reports of underage drinking at a #houseparty.

Officers were inside the home trying to find the owner when they heard outside what they believed to be gunshots. Roy Oliver fired into a car full of teenagers as they left the party.

Police had initially said the vehicle reversed "aggressively" towards the officer, but footage discredited the claim, showing the car driving forward, away from him.

He was also #charged with four counts of #aggravatedassault with a deadly weapon by a public official, in relation to the other four #teenagers, including two of the victim's #brothers, who were in the car. "It is important to let our #community know that #justice is proceeding effectively and thoroughly at the Dallas County DA's office," Faith Johnson, the county's district attorney, said in a statement.

The teenager was described by his coach as "a checklist of everything you would want in a player, a son, a teammate, a friend". Roy Oliver faces five to #99years in prison on the murder charge, the Dallas Observer reports.

If convicted, he would be the first police officer convicted of murder in Dallas county since 1973, the report adds. He is currently free on bail.

Lee Merritt, a lawyer for the Edwards family, said on Twitter: "We remain cautious. A murder indictment for Roy Oliver is appropriate but the fact is it's been [more than] 40 years since a cop was convicted in [Texas]." #foodforthought #rbg #problack #blackisbeautiful #blackexcellence #blackmenrock #blackwomenrock #blackgirlsrock #blackboyjoy

This is the cop, #RayOliver, who killed 15-year old #JordanEdwards and lied about what happened. #BalchSprings PD have fired him after he violated multiple department policies. More than likely he will be charged with murder. I hope he answers why he lied and why he chose to shoot. I have yet to hear one cop truthfully say why they shot at any unarmed person. #Enough #CupofMessy

#JordanEdwards being a straight A student, having a high GPA, and being a student athlete is irrelevant to the why his death is wrong. If he was failing, had a record, and sold drugs he still DID NOT DESERVE TO DIE. before you post about his accomplishments and how that made his murder so wrong think about what you're saying about our youth who aren't excelling in school and making bad decisions. They're still people and have a right to live and not be shot down like animals. I'm putting a link to #balchsprings website and some government officials emails as well as the number to the police department. Let's make noise and see that this isn't another case like #altonsterling . Put this murderer behind bars. #blacklivesmatter

This kid will never finish his life, never go to prom, never get married, never have a family of his own, never get his drivers license, never get his high school or college diploma and most of all never get to actually see what the world has to offer, never. β€’ He was stripped of that all because of one cop who took the law into his own hands and decided to shoot in a car full of KIDS who where DRIVING AWAY from him. I understand things happen in the heat of the moment but this one is hard to get over. HOW do you explain this? Of all the stories in the past couple years this is the toughest for me. β€’ I just pray that God strengthen us all so that we may not think evil or do evil things to the people that commit these selfish/evil crimes and that we pray for them instead. It is tough real tough. But it can be done. β€’ Stories like this really hurt my heart. I can't imagine what I would do if I was the father. β€’ #RIPJordanEdwards #JordanEdwards #BalchSprings #BalchSpringsPoliceDepartment #RoyOliver

Finally justice forJordan! A white former police officer in a Dallas suburb was indicted by a grand jury on a murder charge for fatally shooting an unarmed black high school freshman in April with a high-powered rifle as the teenager and four others drove away from a house party, prosecutors said Monday.

The former officer, Roy D. Oliver II, an Iraq war #veteran who was on the #police force in the working-class city of #BalchSprings, was also indicted on four counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon by a public servant.

The charges were announced by the #Dallas County district attorney, Faith Johnson. If convicted of murder, Mr. Oliver, 37, could face a prison term of five to 99 years or life, the same range as the aggravated assault charges. β€œThese types of multiple charges against a police officer are historic in Dallas County,” said Daryl Washington, a lawyer for Jordan’s family in a lawsuit against Balch Springs and Mr. Oliver. β€œIt sends a message to bad cops that you can no longer kill an unarmed person and get no billed.” #blacklivesmatter #newyork #neworleans #africa #dallas #chicago ##philly

#BalchSprings police officer #RoyOliver fired multiple shots into a car which struck and killed 15-year-old #JordanEdwards back in April. On Monday, Oliver was indicted by a grand jury for murder.

According to reports, Oliver was also indicted for four counts of aggravated assault, one count for each person who was in the car with Jordan at that time. The other individuals included his brother and two friends.

As you may recall, Oliver and and another officer were responding to a house party where someone reported there were drugs and alcohol present. There was no drugs and alcohol found, but soon after they arrived, the officers and the partygoers heard shots. It was later found that the shots were from a nursing home down the street, but Oliver ran outside and went for his rifle.

At the same time, Jordan’s group was trying to leave the party. Their car sped off which led Oliver to fire into the car, striking Jordan....more to come on this story...
