Confrontation with cop accused of murder

Confrontation with cop accused of murder

19 Action News confronted a former Cleveland Police Sergeant charged with murder. We found Dale Edwards coming out of his home.

Edwards told reporter Ed Gallek, "Ed, no comment. I'm praying for the family. Ask everybody to pray for the family. Pray for everybody involved. You know my character."

Police say last week Edwards shot his own nephew during a landlord tenant dispute. On a 911 call, Edwards claimed self-defense though investigators said the victim was unarmed.

Edwards told us to check that man's background.

Edwards kept saying no comment, closing his garage door. But then he repeatedly opened the door for a few more words.
