Police set up barricades and restricted vehicle traffic through downtown Louisville, Kentucky, in anticipation of the state attorney general’s announcement on whether he will charge the officers involved in the fatal Breonna Taylor shooting.
Footage recorded Tuesday morning, September 22, near the court district in downtown Louisville shows several boarded-up storefronts and cement barricades preventing vehicular traffic near Jefferson Square Park.
Louisville Metro Police Department (LMPD) Interim Chief Robert Schroeder said on Tuesday that police had no information about when Attorney General Daniel Cameron’s announcement would come, nor what his decision would be.
Six Louisville officers were under investigation for the death of Breonna Taylor, the 26-year-old emergency medical technician fatally shot in her home by LMPD in March 2020.
Officer Brett Hankison was fired on June 23 for his actions during the raid, and the City of Louisville agreed on September 15 to pay Taylor’s family $12 million and reform police practices as part of a settlement. Credit: Michael Roberts via Storyful
