Three New Orleans police officers - two accused of mistreating police dogs and one charged with illegally shooting his gun - have been fired.

Superintendent Ronal Serpas announced on Wednesday that Officers Jason Lewis, Nikia Adams and Patrick O'Hearn were dismissed for violating department rules.

Lewis, a 13-year veteran, and Adams, an eight-year veteran, each pleaded guilty to animal cruelty, and O'Hearn, who was on the force for 13 years, was fired for illegally discharging his weapon and drinking while on duty.
