Weapons Expert: At Least Three Guns Involved in James Brisette Shooting
A firearms expert who works for the Louisiana State Police testified yesterday that James Brissette, who died on the Danziger Bridge, was hit by six projectiles fired from at least three different weapons. Brissette was 17 years old at the time of the shooting.
One bullet removed from Brissette's body definitively matched an AK-47 carried by Sgt. Kenneth Bowen, the expert, Patrick Lane, told the jury. Lane said a second bullet of the same caliber could have come from Bowen's weapon but he could not definitively match it.
