NOT GUILTY PLEA FROM OFFICER IN BREONNA TAYLOR CASE
The only Louisville, Ky. police officer indicted by a grand jury in the fatal shooting of Breonna Taylor pleaded not guilty to three counts of wanton endangerment at his arraignment Monday, local media reported. Former detective Brett Hankison was indicted Wednesday and charged with endangering Taylor’s neighbours with bullets he fired into an adjacent apartment during a March 13 drug raid. The other two officers involved in Taylor’s shooting were not charged at all. Taylor, 26, a Black emergency medical technician, was struck by six bullets moments after she and her boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, were roused from bed in the commotion of the raid. Hankison was fired from the Louisville Metro Police Department in June for his actions during the raid.
