Shooting ruled homicide


Orleans Parish Coroner Jeffrey Rouse rules police shooting of Glover outside a police substation in an Algiers strip mall days after Hurricane Katrina a “homicide”, instead of “undetermined”. Rouse bases the classification on a review of all available evidence and a review of court transcripts:

Having received additional information, it became very clear to me that the appropriate classification was homicide. That is simply from a medical standpoint, and simply means a death was caused by the intentional actions of another person. It is not a legal finding of manslaughter or justifiable or murder or anything of that nature.

Glover’s aunt Rebecca Glover declares,

It is a homicide. It always was a homicide.
