NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - A man accused of shooting and killing an New Orleans Police Department officer is expected in court Thursday.

Bridges pleaded not guilty to all eight of the charges against him last November.

Investigators said McNeil was on patrol with three other officers in New Orleans East when Bridges shot at him.
