There were signs over the weekend that the FBI was still very actively probing the New Orleans police related shooting deaths six days after Katrina in 2005.

The New Orleans Times Picayune reports that the FBI shut down the infamous Danziger Bridge for several hours Saturday to scour for evidence where two men were killed and four others were wounded. Police were responding to shots fired at officers.

FBI spokeswoman Sheila Thorne confirmed to the newspaper that the evidence gathering mission was part of the civil rights probe into the shootings.
