Five NOPD Officers Facing Trial For Post-Katrina Shooting
New Orleans, La. – Federal prosecutors say Henry Glover was shot during the chaotic aftermath of the storm. He was taken in a private car to a temporary police station nearby for help, but officers allegedly drove off in the car with Glover inside. It was later found burned out near a levee, with the charred remains of his body inside. One officer is accused of shooting Glover. Two are charged with setting the car fire. Two others are accused of obstructing federal investigators. It's one of several federal cases involving New Orleans police conduct after Hurricane Katrina. Jury selection is scheduled to start this week.
