A fired Texas police officer turned himself in Friday after an arrest warrant for murder was issued against him following the shooting death of a 15-year-old boy in Balch Springs last weekend, authorities said.
Former Balch Springs police officer Roy Oliver, 37, turned himself into the Parker County Sheriff’s Office, a spokesman for the Dallas County Sheriff’s Department said Friday evening.
Oliver allegedly fired into a car full of teenagers leaving a party on Saturday night. Jordan Edwards, 15, was shot in the head and later died. Oliver was fired by the police department on Tuesday.
