New Orleans Police Officials say they have reviewed footage taken from officers' body cameras that show a suspect killed in a shootout fired at law enforcement first.

According to a report released yesterday, the video shows the man firing at police who then returned fire and fatally wounded the suspect.

The incident happened last Friday morning near Parc Brittany Boulevard, and the two NOPD officers involved have been temporarily reassigned to administrative duty pending the results of an investigation.
