NEW ORLEANS - A New Orleans police lieutenant convicted of writing a false report about the fatal shooting of a man by a police officer following Hurricane Katrina has been fired.

Chief Ronal Serpas said Lt. Travis McCabe was dismissed Wednesday after an investigation into events surrounding the fatal shooting of Henry Glover in September 2005.

McCabe was convicted in December of falsifying a report to make it appear that then-officer David Warren was justified in shooting Glover. McCabe's lawyers recently asked for a new trial in that federal case.

Serpas said in a news release that McCabe was fired for violating moral conduct rules regarding false statements and obstruction of an investigation.
