7 injured in protest over Breonna Taylor’s death

Breonna Taylor: What to know about Louisville EMT killed by police

Seven people suffered gunshot wounds Thursday at a protest in Louisville, Kentucky, over the fatal March shooting of a black woman, Breonna Taylor, in her home by three white police officers.

Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer said two of the injured people were undergoing surgery and five were in good condition.

He said the violence occurred within the crowd, and no police officers fired their weapons. Protesters demanded police accountability for Taylor’s death, and chanted, “no justice, no peace, prosecute police.”

Taylor, a 26-year-old emergency medical technician, was killed when the police raided her apartment in a narcotics investigation that wasn’t targeting her.

Her sister, Juniyah Palmer, in a Facebook post thanked demonstrators for demanding justice and urged them not to “resort to violence.”
