Breonna Taylor grand jury, Ex-cop indicted; 2 others said to be ‘justified’.

Protesters in Louisville and supporters across the U.S. have called for “justice for Breonna Taylor” for more than six months.

On Wednesday, a Kentucky grand jury indicted one of three police officers involved in her shooting death on charges of wanton endangermentfor shooting a gun into three neighboring apartments. Former Louisville police officer Brett Hankison is facing three felony charges; two other officers involved in the shooting were not.

Taylor, a 26-year-old ER technician, was killed after officers used a “no-knock” search warrant at her apartment shortly before 1 a.m. on March 13, looking for drugs and cash as part of a larger narcotics investigation connected to her former boyfriend. She was shot six times, though officials have not publicly said which officer or officers shot her.
