Breaking: ‘At Least 10 Shots’ Reportedly Fired At Police By Louisville Black Lives Matter Rioters — At Least Two Officers Shot (Videos)

(Breitbart) – Two Louisville Metro Police Department officers were shot Wednesday evening in downtown Louisville amid protests after a Kentucky grand jury did not bring murder charges against any of the officers involved in the shooting death of Breonna Taylor.

Louisville Police Chief told reporters that the two officers are in stable and receiving medical treatment. The suspect is in custody.

Earlier Wednesday, protesters marched through downtown Louisville, some armed with riot shields and anti-police signs. As night fell, some rioters began setting fires around the downtown area, including the boarded up Hall of Justice.

Around 500 Kentucky National Guard members were authorized for Louisville by Gov. Andy Beshear (D).

A Jefferson County grand jury indicted one of three police officers involved in Taylor’s shooting inside her Louisville apartment. The charges are connected to the firing of shots into the neighboring apartment. Former officer Brett Hankison was indicted on three counts of first-degree wanton endangerment.

As Breitbart News reported:

Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron explained Wednesday afternoon that no police officers would be charged directly for the death of Breonna Taylor in Louisville in March because they knocked before entering her boyfriend’s apartment.

Taylor, 26, an emergency medical technician, was killed in the crossfire when her boyfriend opened fire at police, thinking they were intruders.

After expressing his condolences to Taylor’s family, Cameron explained that the officers who had shot Taylor would not be charged because they had been fired upon first, and because her boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, testified that they had knocked first.

Senate Majority Leader McConnell (R-KY) issued a statement regarding Cameron’s announcement, saying: “Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron led a complete inquiry to find the truth and pursue justice. I have total confidence he followed the facts and the legal process in his decision.”

The FBI, meanwhile, said its investigation of the shooting was still underway despite the state’s announcement. The agency opened the probe in May.

“FBI Louisville continues its federal investigation into all aspects of the death of Breonna Taylor,” FBI spokesman Tim Beam told the Louisville Courier Journal. “This work will continue beyond the state charges announced today.”

An array of activists, politicians and celebrities have called for all three officers to face murder charges. Presidential candidate Joe Biden said earlier this month the officers “need to be charged.”

His running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris, tweeted in June, “We can’t forget about Black women in our quest for justice.”

Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer declared a state of emergency Tuesday out of concern for potential civil unrest following the decision. The declaration allowed him to set curfews.

  1. This is what the left, including the dumbacrats, call justice. It is just another reason for rioting and looting. In the Breonna Taylor case, the cops knocked and announced themselves; they were shot at first by her boyfriend who appears used her like a shield. They weren’t in bed – just another lie spread by these terrorists.

    Then they celebrate shooting police officers. And you can bet there will be worse if liar Biden (he’s never kept a campaign promise he made, but boy is he good a bribing foreign officials) and his crocked running mate are elected.

  2. Well, Soros’s expanded job opportunity at work! I suppose he wants to relive his youth and the success of his entrepreneur experience that he says he enjoyed in Germany. Nice of him to offer such an opportunity for unemployable, malajusted, empathy deficit misfits who have graduated from the propaganda institutions.

  3. why is the fbi still investigating? they are a corrupt agency and need to be throughly vetted by outside sources. wray has done nothing to clean up the agency and he needs to be terminated immediately.
