Jordan Edwards shooting: Ex-Texas police officer charged

Oliver initially claimed the vehicle, driven by one of Edwards' brothers, had reversed into the officers, justifying his decision to open fire on the Chevy Impala.

In May, Oliver was sacked and then arrested after the Balch Springs Police Chief said body camera video did not match his version of events in the Edwards shooting.

At the time of Oliver's arrest, a spokeswoman for the Dallas County Sheriff's Department said the arrest warrant was issued because evidence suggested Oliver "intended to cause serious bodily injury and commit an act clearly unsafe to human life that caused the death of an individual".

Oliver was also charged with four counts of aggravated assault, for the four other teenagers in the auto with Edwards when Oliver shot a rifle into the vehicle as it drove away from a party on April 29.

"We have some great police officers", she said.

"It is important to let our community know that justice is proceeding effectively and thoroughly at the Dallas County DA's Office", DA Johnson said.

In the Edwards' case, Oliver faces up to life in prison.
