No Drugs Or Alcohol Found At Party Where Cops Killed Texas Teen Jordan Edwards

There was no alcohol or drugs at a suburban Dallas house party where a police officer fatally shot an unarmed black honor student, according to a report.

Police arrived at a Balch Springs home on April 29 after receiving a call that teens had been drinking, leading to the deadly encounter.

The night ended with Roy Oliver, a white police officer, shooting 15-year-old Jordan Edwards in the head as he sat in the passenger seat of a moving car.

But none of the teens were drinking nor doing drugs, a law enforcement official told the Dallas Morning News.

An autopsy report this week also showed no traces of alcohol or illegal drugs in Edwards’ system, the newspaper reported.

Oliver was fired for violating department procedures, but police didn’t specify what rules he had broken.

The 37-year-old cop first told investigators that the car carrying Edwards was coming toward him in a threatening manner — something later refuted by body camera footage.

Last week Oliver was also charged with aggravated assault for a separate incident in which he pulled a gun on a fellow driver.

Monique Arredondo said Oliver pulled a gun on her earlier in April after she rear-ended his truck.

Oliver, who was off duty at the time of the incident, told police he produced the firearm because he thought Arredondo was also going for a gun.

Edwards was a straight-A student who played for his high school’s football team.
