Fam­ily sues of­fi­cer in teen’s fa­tal shoot­ing

The Hamilton Spectator - - CANADA & WORLD -

The fam­ily of a black 15-year-old is su­ing the white po­lice of­fi­cer who shot and killed him, as well as the of­fi­cer’s sub­ur­ban Dal­las po­lice de­part­ment. Jor­dan Ed­wards’s funeral was Satur­day, one week af­ter he was shot dead in a vehicle leav­ing a chaotic house party. Lawyers for the Ed­wards fam­ily say Of­fi­cer Roy Oliver used a ri­fle to shoot at the vehicle as it was driv­ing away, pierc­ing a pas­sen­ger win­dow and strik­ing Ed­wards. Oliver was fired and ar­rested last week on a mur­der charge.
