DALLAS (AP) – A white Texas police officer is free on bond on a murder charge in the shooting of a black teenager who was inside a car leaving a party. Roy Oliver turned himself in Friday night just hours after an arrest warrant was issued. He was fired from the Balch Springs department in suburban Dallas earlier this week. Oliver shot at a car full of teenagers April 29, killing 15-year-old Jordan Edwards.
