Gov. Andy Beshear (D-KY) is calling for an investigation into the police killing of Breonna Taylor, a 26-year-old black first responder, who was shot eight times in her own apartment by Louisville Metro police officers on March 13.
Taylor was asleep when the police, who had a search warrant in a drug investigation meant for someone else, entered without identifying themselves. Louisville Metro Police Department officials claimed the officers engaged in the shooting after Taylor’s boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, shot first, but Walker is a licensed gun owner who allegedly thought someone was breaking in.
WLKY News released photos from the scene, which show bullet-holes covering the interior and exterior of her apartment.
