A man charged with lying to the FBI about deadly police shootings on a New Orleans bridge in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina is set to make his initial court appearance later this month.

Authorities say Marion David Ryder was near the Danziger Bridge when officers shot and killed two people and wounded four others following the storm.

Two former New Orleans officers have pleaded guilty in the case.

Ryder allegedly falsely claimed he was chasing a group of people near the bridge when one of them fired a gun at him.

The hearing is set to take place April 16.
