NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A federal grand jury has handed up a new
indictment against five current or former New Orleans police
officers charged in a man's fatal shooting in Hurricane Katrina's
Friday's indictment doesn't add or subtract any of the charges
contained in June's original indictment. But it inserts language
that claims former officer David Warren had "an attempt to kill"
when he allegedly shot 31-year-old Henry Glover.
U.S. Attorney Jim Letten said the new wording is "more
precise" but wouldn't elaborate. Warren's lawyer said the change
doesn't affect his defense.
All five men are scheduled to be arraigned on the new indictment
on Aug. 19.
Glover's charred body turned up in a burned car after the 2005
storm. After he was shot, Glover was driven to a school that police
were using after the storm. His body was in the car when an officer
at the school allegedly drove it away.
