NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A third New Orleans police officer is
expected to plead guilty in a federal probe of a deadly shooting in
Hurricane Katrina's aftermath.
A person familiar with the case said a bill of information is
expected to be filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court against Officer
Michael Hunter Jr. The person was not authorized to discuss the
case and therefore spoke on condition of anonymity.
Two former police officers, Michael Lohman and Jeffrey Lehrmann,
already have pleaded guilty to a cover up after police killed two
unarmed civilians and wounded four others on the Danziger bridge
less than a week after the August 2005 storm.
A police report says Hunter drove officers to the bridge in a
rental truck and fired three shots during the incident.
