Downtown streets are still closed and the city remains on the edge Wednesday as Louisville awaits an announcement from Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron about potential charges against the police officers at the center of the Breonna Taylor case.
Louisville was placed under a state of emergency Tuesday as city officials closed down a more than 25-block perimeter to traffic. Most city administrative buildings and other businesses were boarded up in anticipation of the decision. Protests in Louisville related to Taylor’s death in March have been taking place for more than 100 consecutive days.
Taylor was shot six times, Cameron said, and the fatal round was fired by Cosgrove. A bullet fired by Kenneth Walker, Taylor’s boyfriend, injured Mattingly, according to Cameron, who cited evidence investigators found. Mattingly and Cosgrove were justified to return fire, the attorney general said.
