Fox 8 TV in Louisville confirms that two police officers have been shot in downtown Louisville during the riots and unrest following the reading of the indictments in the Breonna Taylor shooting. Their conditions are not known at this time.
Planned riots and protests were intentionally sparked after only one police officer was indicted instead of all three who were involved in the confrontation between Breonna Taylor’s armed boyfriend and police in March.
The FBI SWAT team assembled in Louisville has been activated following the reports that rioters were shooting off live rounds in the area.
The shots were heard in this video of the protesters and onlookers after curfew was established and police had declared gatherings unlawful in the area.
