Trial begins for ex-officer in Katrina shooting

Updated:

 

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Opening statements began Wednesday in the retrial of a former New Orleans policeman who shot and killed a man four days after Hurricane Katrina.

David Warren is charged with violating 31-year-old Henry Glover's civil rights and with using a weapon in a violent crime. Warren was guarding a police substation from a second-floor balcony when he shot Glover in 2005.

He previously testified that he thought Glover had a gun.

He was convicted of manslaughter in 2010, but a federal appeals court overturned the conviction. The court ruled he should have been tried separately from officers charged in a cover-up designed to make Glover's shooting appear justified.
