4 Louisville Officers Charged By U S Over Breonna Taylor’s Killing

Four current and former police officers from Louisville, Kentucky, were arrested Thursday and face federal charges brought by the Justice Department over the 2020 shooting of Breonna Taylor, a 26-year-old Black woman who was killed after officers raided her home as she slept. Taylor’s death in March 2020 was one of the high-profile police shootings that fueled the nationwide Black Lives Matter protests that year. In September, a Kentucky grand jury decided to not indict officers for her death, which spurred more protests in Louisville. Before Thursday, only one officer ever faced charges over Taylor’s shooting: Hankison, who was accused of endangering her neighbors but acquitted in March 2022. Hankison was fired from the force in June 2020.
