LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Louisville’s mayor said Friday that one of three police officers involved in the fatal shooting of Breonna Taylor will be fired.
Mayor Greg Fisher said interim Louisville police Chief Robert Schroeder has started termination proceedings for Officer Brett Hankison. Two other officers remain on administrative reassignment while the shooting is investigated.
Fischer said officials could not answer questions about the firing because of state law. He referred all questions to the Jefferson County attorney’s office.
Taylor, who was black, was gunned down by officers who burst into her Louisville home using a no-knock warrant. She was shot eight times by officers conducting a narcotics investigation on March 13. No drugs were found at her home.
FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky’s attorney general has asked for patience as his office investigates the shooting death of a black woman by Louisville police.
Attorney General Daniel Cameron said Thursday he recognizes the urgency to “find the truth.” Cameron declined to publicly set a timetable for the completion of the investigation into the death of Breonna Taylor.
Protesters in Louisville and across the country have demanded justice for Taylor and other black Americans killed by police.
Taylor was shot eight times by officers who burst into her home while conducting a narcotics investigation on March 13.
No drugs were found at her home.
