NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

Henry Glover's family wants the police officer who shot and killed him in the days following hurricane Katrina indicted now that his death has been reclassified a homicide by the Orleans Parish coroner. The family held a press conference Wednesday in front of the Orleans Parish District Attorney's Office.

Glover's family fought for nearly a decade to have his death reclassified a homicide, but when that day came last week, they say their fight wasn't over.

Now, Glover's family is asking District Attorney Leon Cannizzaro to reopen the case. They just held an emotional press conference in front of Cannizzaro's office carrying signs with the word "justice."

They're asking for an indictment of former NOPD officer David Warren.

Warren admitted to shooting and killing Glover in the days Katrina, but, claimed self-defense. He was later acquitted of federal civil right's violations.

Another former officer is serving prison time for burning a car with Glover's body in it. Wednesday, Glover's family demanded that Warren be prosecuted.

FOX 8 reached out to Warren's attorney for comment, but he has not returned calls. However, when Glover's death was reclassified a homicide last week, Warren's attorney said that reclassification is not based on any new evidence and has no effect on Warren's prior acquittal.
