Louisville Jefferson County

Here’s what we know about decision – Louisville/Jefferson County, Kentucky

Louisville/Jefferson County, Kentucky 2020-09-24 02:31:46 –

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — For five months, the demand has echoed across Louisville and around the country: “Arrest the cops who killed Breonna Taylor.”

On Wednesday, they got their answer.

No.

A Jefferson County grand jury Wednesday indicted Brett Hankison, 44, on three counts of first-degree wanton endangerment. Jurors said several bullets he fired outside Taylor’s apartment March 13 went into a neighboring unit where a pregnant woman, a man and a child were home.

But neither he nor two other Louisville officers who fired their weapons at Taylor’s apartment — Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly and Detective Myles Cosgrove — were charged with killing Taylor, an unarmed Black woman. 

And Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron made it clear he expects no further criminal charges to be filed in connection with the events at Taylor’s apartment that night.
