It’s unclear who was responsible for the shootings or even if they were related to the protests. There were at least two different armed militia groups surrounding Black Lives Matter protesters in what protesters have renamed Breonna Taylor Park, so it’s unclear if
Curfew was set for 9 p.m. and the area was largely cleared by the time of curfew.
The grand jury in Louisville, Kentucky refused to charge the officer who killed Breonna Taylor Wednesday afternoon. Instead, they indicted the officer who fired his weapon into other apartments but refused to charge officers who fired into her apartment.
