2nd Night of Unrest in Louisville Following Taylor Case Decision

What's Happening:

  • Protests continued for the second night in a row in Louisville, KY following the Breonna Taylor case decision that came out Wednesday.

  • At least 24 protesters were arrested for multiple reasons including property damage, unlawful assembly, failure to disperse and riot in the first degree.

  • Wednesday's long-awaited grand jury decision resulted in one of the three officers involved in the fatal shooting being indicted on criminal charges. The other two officers were not indicted. None of the officers were charged with Breonna Taylor's death.

  • Taylor, an EMT, was shot and killed by police in her apartment six months ago following the execution of a no-knock search warrant.

  • Her death is one of the many that have led to widespread protests throughout the nation against police brutality and systemic racism.

  • Two officers were wounded in a shooting during the first night of protests. The suspect, Larynzo Johnson, is currently in custody and waiting to be arraigned on Friday.
