The FBI is investigating New Orleans police involved in the infamous Danzinger Bridge Incident. On Sep. 4.2005 police shot and killed two people including a mentally retarded man and injured four others.

The incident happened six days after Hurricane Katrina igniting racial tension in the New Orleans community. The Associated Press reports that a state judge threw out murder and attempted murder charges against seven current and former police officers but now the FBI is investigating if civil rights were violated.

Officers admit to shooting at the bridge but only after being shot at first. Survivors of the incident refute that claim saying that officers fired at unarmed people crossing the bridge to get food. The FBI has confiscated two computers from the New Orleans Police Department regarding the incident so far.
