Two officers shot, suspect in custody amid night of unrest after grand jury decision on Breonna Taylor case


Here are some significant developments:

  • Dozens of protesters were arrested in Louisville, a police spokesman said. While the arrest numbers were still being tallied early Thursday, Sgt. Lamont Washington said he expected the total to be close to 100.
  • The grand jury Jefferson County, Ky., indicted Brett Hankison, whowas fired by the department in June, with a termination letter saying he “wantonly and blindly” shot 10 times into Taylor’s apartment. He is accused of endangering lives in a neighboring unit by firing the rounds.
  • The other officers involved in Taylor’s death were not indicted. Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron (R),facing the toughest moment yet in his fledgling political career, said he did not anticipate charges in the future.
  • Cameron said the state’s investigation determined that the officers’ use of force was “justified” because they had been fired upon first, by Kenneth Walker, Taylor’s boyfriend. Walkerhas sued Louisville policeand disputed their version of events.
  • Ben Crump, one of the attorneys for Taylor’s family, told CNN that the grand jury’s decision felt “like killing Breonna all over again.”
  • Asked about the Taylor case, Joe Biden, the Democratic presidential nominee, expressed hope that the demonstrations would be peaceful. But he rankled some activists who viewed his remarks as associating the Louisville protesters’ cause with violence.
