Police Chief Changes Account In Shooting Death Of 15-Year-Old Jordan Edwards

Two days after a Texas police officer was placed on administrative leave in the shooting death of 15-year-old Jordan Edwards, authorities say video of the encounter contradicts internal information they received about it.

Balch Springs Police Chief Jonathan Haber had previously said that an officer had fired at a car of passengers heading toward police in reverse.

But at a press conference on Monday, Haber called that statement “unintentionally incorrect” and said video evidence revealed the car was actually driving away from officers.

“After further investigation, I have additional information that is contradictory to the information that was provided to me,” Haber said.

The police chief did not say who provided the original, incorrect information. He also declined to release a copy of the video to the media.
