More detail on the Danziger Bridge attack.

New Orleans police officers yesterday shot and killed two blacks and wounded three others who had fired at officers escorting a convoy of contractors across a bridge.

W. J. Riley, the assistant superintendent of police in New Orleans, said a sixth shooter (pictured) was arrested and charged with attempted murder of a police officer. "All our officers said the assailants all had guns."

The incident began when a rescue worker heard gunshots and called police. When the responding unit saw six people on the bridge with guns, they called in a task force unit, which confronted the group, according to Riley.

"The subjects fired on the task force, which returned fire," he said, killing two on the scene and wounding two others. The other two fled and the task force pursued, wounding one and capturing the other.
