  • The Louisville police announced Wednesday night that two officers have been wounded in a shooting. No additional details have been provided.

  • Today's long-awaited grand jury decision comes more than 6 months after Taylor was fatally shot. The Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron announced Wednesday that 1 of the 3 officers involved in the shooting will be indicted on criminal charges. The other two officers will not be indicted.
