Former Black Panther Members Accused of Murder

Eight men linked to the Black Panthers are arrested in connection with the 1971 murder of a San Francisco police sergeant. The officer was killed during a shotgun attack on a police station in San Francisco's Ingleside neighborhood.

Seven of the suspects were members of the Black Liberation Army, which was an offshoot of the Panthers. Detectives say they finally got a break in the 35-year-old cold case based on new advances in forensic technology.
