Two police officers shot during violent protests in Louisville over Breonna Taylor

Violence breaks out over the death of a black woman during a police raid

The Louisville Metro Police Dept. said that two officers had been shot during the violent protests in Louisville, Kentucky, over the charges announced against one officer related to the death of Breonna Taylor.

Black Lives Matter protesters immediately denounced the grand jury decision of charges against only one of the officers involved in the controversial shooting death of Taylor during a police raid in March.

Police initially said that one officer had been shot but offered few details about the incident.

Later they confirmed that two officers had been shot.

Protesters took to the streets to demonstrate against the grand jury decision. Reporters and others on social media documented small fires being set off and firecrackers being fired off during many of the gatherings.

Reporters in the vicinity said that firecrackers were set off at about the same time as the gunshots.

Interim Police Chief Robert Schroeder later updated the media about the incident and the condition of the two police officers who had been hospitalized.
