Jury Convicts Five NOPD Officers In Post-Katrina Shootings, Cover-Up
August 05, 2011
A jury convicted all five New Orleans Police officers accused of fatally shooting two civilians on Danzinger Bridge and covering it up for almost five years.
Four of the five officers — Kenneth Bowen, Robert Gisevius, Robert Faulcon and Anthony Villavaso — have been in custody since their arraignment.
The fifth, retired Sgt. Arthur "Archie" Kaufman, was not involved in the shootings but headed the police investigation into them. He remains free on bail.
