Louisville buildings Breonna Taylor, investigation into the killing of Breonna.
The Gene Snyder United States Courthouse will be closed to the public through Friday, September 25, according to an order by Greg Stivers, US District Court for the Western District of Kentucky. All scheduled in-court appearances will be continued or converted to videoconference proceedings at the discretion of the presiding judge, the order says.
The courthouse’s windows were boarded up on Monday.
The US Citizenship and Immigration Services field office in Louisville will also be closed during that period “due to a court order.” Neither facility provided additional details for the closures.
The closures come as a grand jury has been empaneled in Louisville, and sources have told CNN that it will at some point take up Taylor’s case.
Taylor, a 26-year-old EMT and aspiring nurse, was fatally shot after police broke down the door to her apartment while executing a late-night “no-knock” warrant in a narcotics investigation on March 13.
