Incident

According to initial reports, the officers were responding around 11:00 p.m. to a 911 call "reporting several underage kids drunk walking around" at a party of approximately 100 people. Upon arrival, the officers allegedly heard gunshots, which created panic and caused party-goers to flee. Officer Roy Oliver fired three rifle rounds into a vehicle, striking Edwards in the head and killing him. Oliver was reportedly armed with an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle. Along with Edwards, the car contained two of Edwards' brothers and two friends. Edwards' 16-year-old brother was driving the car. Lee Merritt, a lawyer for Edwards' family, said Oliver shot through the front passenger side window. Edwards was pronounced dead at a local hospital. According to police, Edwards' brother was held in police custody overnight for the purpose of questioning him as a witness.

Police originally stated there was an "unknown altercation with a vehicle backing down the street towards the officers in an aggressive manner". After reviewing body cam footage, Police Chief Jonathan Haber later admitted that the vehicle was not moving toward the officers, but rather away from them. Haber said he had "misspoke", saying, "I was unintentionally incorrect yesterday when I said that the victim's vehicle was backing down the road." A later statement by the police department said, "The vehicle then pulled forward as the officer continued to approach the vehicle giving verbal commands. The vehicle continued the main roadway driving away from the officer as an officer shot into the vehicle striking the passenger."

Oliver was fired from the police department as a result of the shooting. He had been a member of the Balch Springs Police Department for six years.

Victim

Jordan Edwards was a 15-year-old African American boy who lived in Balch Springs, Texas. He was a first-year student at Mesquite High School where he played football. His death was ruled a homicide.

Aftermath

Oliver, the officer who killed Edwards, was placed on administrative leave following the shooting and fired on May 2, 2017. Chief Haber said Oliver's behavior "did not meet our core values". The Dallas County Sheriff's Department and the Dallas County District Attorney's Office are conducting an investigation into the shooting. On May 5, 2017, Oliver was charged with murder and a warrant was issued for his arrest. He turned himself into police later that day and was released after posting $300,000 in bail.

Responses

A vigil was held at Edwards's school on the evening of May 1, 2017. A lawyer for Edwards' family demanded the arrest of Oliver.

Public and media reaction compared Edwards' death to the killings of other young black men by police officers. Reactions also noted the discrepancy between the original police account of the incident stating that the vehicle carrying Edwards had backed up aggressively toward the officers, and the body cam video showing the vehicle pulling away from the officers. Thousands of people began using the hashtag #jordanedwards on social media in response to the shooting. The American Civil Liberties Union's division in Texas tweeted, "We need answers. @BalchSpringsPD should immediately release footage of #JordanEdwards shooting. #BlackLivesMatter". Shaun King published an article in the New York Daily News calling for the arrest of Oliver. A local protest rally was postponed at the request of Edwards' family.
