Defense Attorney Offers Alternate Explanation for Shootings
Yesterday, Eric Hessler, defense attorney for Sgt. Robert Gisevius, questioned the FBI's theory of the Danziger Bridge shootings and suggested an alternative explanation.
Hessler was questioning William Bezak, a prosecution witness who led the FBI investigation of the shootings, and argued that bullet markings on the bridge suggested that a gunman was firing from underneath the bridge. According to this theory, the wounded civilians got caught in the cross-fire between the police on the bridge and the unknown gunman below.
