Jordan Edwards was 15 years and at a house party on Saturday, April 29th, in a Dallas, Texas suburb. When the party got loud, police arrived and Jordan entered a car with four other unarmed kids to leave. Unarmed.

Jordan was killed by rifle fire shot by police officer Roy Oliver.

The Balch Springs Police Chief originally said the officer fired after the car drove "aggressively" toward him and another cop but later retracted that statement as body camera footage showed the car was driving forward, away from the officers, not reversing toward them as originally reported. Officer Oliver has been fired.

My heart goes out to Jordan's family. They have issued a statement that says: "We do not support nor do we condone any violence or threats made against the Balch Springs Police Department or any other law enforcement agencies. What we desire only second to having our beloved Jofdan back, is Justice for Jordan."

Jordan was a sophomore who was excited to play defensive back for his high school's football team.

His jersey number was 11.
