Police began to patrol the neighborhood around 11 p.m. on Saturday, April 29, 2017. There was a report of a dispute at a house party in the Dallas, Texas suburb of Balch Springs.
Prompted by a call from a neighbor's son, police arrived to investigate a confrontation over the neighbor's blocked driveway, as well as possible underage drinking at the house party on Baron Drive.
But within sixty-six minutes, yet another person was executed by a law enforcement officer.
That person was fifteen-year-old Jordan Edwards.
Jordan Edwards was shot by one of the responding cops, Roy Oliver, as he left the party with his two brothers and two friends in a black Chevrolet Impala.
