Roy Oliver Indicted For Jordan Edwards Shooting
After already losing his job for fatally shooting an unarmed Texas teen, an ex-Officer has been officially indicted. As previously reported Jordan Edwards, 15, was killed in April when Roy Oliver, a six-year veteran of the Balch Springs Police Department in suburban Dallas, fired into a car full of teens and shot him in the head.
Now a grand jury has indicted him for not only killing Jordan but shooting at the vehicle as it moved away from him and another officer. According to CBS News, Oliver’s been indicted on four charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon by a public official, as well as murder.
Reps for the disgraced ex-officer have yet to respond to the indictment.
Back in May the Dallas County Sheriff’s Department formally charged Oliver with murder prompting him to turn himself in and post bond. Now he’ll go to trial.
We’re praying that this is step one for justice for Jordan Edwards’ family.
