A white former Texas police officer was found guilty of murder on Tuesday for fatally shooting an unarmed black teenager last year as the boy left a house party in a car full of teenagers. Officer Roy Oliver was fired from the Balch Springs Police Department days after the April 2017 shooting. Oliver killed 15-year-old Jordan Edwards after the then-officer fired into a moving car carrying five black teenagers leaving a local house party. Edwards was in the front passenger seat. Oliver testified during the Dallas County trial that he opened fire after seeing the car move toward his partner. He says he thought his partner was in danger; however his partner told jurors he didn’t fear for his life and never felt the need to fire his weapon. Testifying in his own defense, Oliver told the jury the car was about to hit his partner and said he felt he had no other option but to fire. Gross, however, testified that he did not fear for his life and never felt the need to fire his weapon.
