BREAKING NEWS: Kentucky grand jury indicts 1 of 3 officers in fatal Breonna Taylor police shooting


Breonna Taylor

We have been waiting on pins and needles for this verdict, and here it it…One of the three officers has been indicted in the death of Breonna Taylor.

Brett Hankinson who was fired in June, is facing three felony counts and bail was set at $15,000. A warrant has been issued for his arrest.

Two other officers involved in the shooting, Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly and Detective Myles Cosgrove, were justified in their use of force, state Attorney General Daniel Cameron said at news conference.

Around 200 protesters gathered at Jefferson Square Park in downtown Louisville as the announcement was played on a loudspeaker. They almost immediately began chanting “No justice, no peace.”
