“Understandably, emotions are high,” said Louis Fischer, Mayor of Louisville on Facebook. “As Breonna’s mother said, let’s be peaceful while working toward truth and justice.”
This week, protesters filed for justice to Taylor, an EMT that had been hit at least eight times in March, and forcibly entered the Kentucky agency to file a search warrant during the narcotic investigation. The department said the officers had announced themselves and fired from their boyfriend, Kenneth Walker.
Also Thursday, one of Walker’s lawyers broadcast the voice of Taylor’s 911 call after Taylor was shot.
“Someone kicked the door and hit my girlfriend,” Walker told the 911 operator, saying that Taylor was unresponsive on the floor.
“This call is one of the hardest things I’ve ever heard,” lawyer Sam Aguiar said on Thursday. Said. “Kenneth Walker is a great man. He stayed with Breonna. He lost his life and then went to jail after doing everything right. He did not know who entered and fired home. My heart is bleeding He and his family.”
The FBI launched an investigation into the incident, and the Louisville Metro Police Department said it would require sworn officers to wear body cameras.
