TX: Police change story in shooting death of black teen

Source: Atlanta Journal-Constitution

“The police on Monday changed their story about the shooting death of 15-year-old Jordan Edwards by a Balch Springs, Texas, officer. The car in which Jordan was riding was not backing toward officers ‘in an aggressive manner,’ as police initially described, Police Chief Jonathan Haber said. Rather, police video shows that the car was actually driving away when an officer fired his rifle into the vehicle, striking Jordan in the head, Haber said. Jordan was killed Saturday night as he and four other teenagers left the scene of a house party at the home of another teen. A neighbor had called police, saying he thought teenagers were drinking at the house.” (05/02/17)
