Video: Cheers for New Orleans officers indicted in Katrina bridge shooting

Cheers from 250 to 300 supporters greeted seven New Orleans police officers who turned themselves in today to face charges for a deadly shooting on a bridge days after Hurricane Katrina hit.

"Each of the indicted men faces at least one charge of murder or attempted murder in the shootings of six people on the Danziger Bridge on September 4, 2005, less than a week after the hurricane hit," Associated Press reports.

"One protester shouted 'Police killings must stop' and 'Racism must go' as the men arrived, but the protester was shouted down by the crowd yelling: 'Heroes, Heroes,'" the A.P. article continued.
