Four New Orleans Police officers have been fired and two more put on suspension, in the deadly car crash into the Unity-1 Salon in Broadmoor on March 20.
New Orleans Police Superintendent Shaun Ferguson said the NOPD's internal investigation found officers violated the department's policy on vehicle pursuits, going so far as to disconnect their dashboard camera.
Ferguson said the investigation revealed that the officers involved in the Broadmoor crash had broken department pursuit policy before.
Officers aren't allowed to chase suspect vehicles unless the suspect has been involved in a violent crime or they're a public threat in need of immediate apprehension.
Three people were killed when a car police had attempted to stop earlier crashed into the Unity-1 Salon at Washington Ave. and S. White St. Several more were injured.
