Story highlights

Balch Springs officer Roy Oliver was fired this week

He fatally shot Jordan Edwards, who was a passenger in a car

(CNN) —  

Grieving friends and family will turn out Saturday for the funeral of Jordan Edwards, the unarmed 15-year-old boy shot dead last week by a police officer who is now charged with murder.

An arrest warrant for murder was issued for former Balch Springs officer Roy Oliver, who officials said fatally shot Jordan Edwards while the teenager was a passenger in a vehicle. The shooting occurred Saturday night and Oliver was fired Tuesday.

“The warrant was issued due to evidence that suggested Mr. Oliver intended to cause serious bodily injury and commit an act clearly dangerous to human life that caused the death of an individual,” said Melinda Urbina, a spokeswoman for the Dallas County Sheriff’s Department.

Oliver was booked at the Parker County Jail on Friday but was released after posting bail, jail records show.

His bond was set for $300,000.

Oliver “violated several departmental policies,” police said when they announced the termination of the officer, without offering details because he has a right to appeal.

Balch Springs Police Chief Jonathan Haber said he made the decision after reviewing the findings of an internal investigation.

Oliver’s firing came after Haber admitted he “misspoke” when he said the car Jordan was riding in Saturday night was moving “aggressively” toward police – leading one officer to fire his rifle toward the car.

Monday, Haber said body camera footage showed the car was driving forward, away from the officers – not reversing toward them.

Jordan’s funeral is scheduled for Saturday.
