A grand jury has indicted one of three Louisville police officers involved in the case over the shooting death of Breonna Taylor, according to Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron.
Former Louisville Metro Police Department officer Brett Hankison was indicted on three counts of wanton endangerment in the first degree in the Breonna Taylor shooting case, a grand jury reported Wednesday, according to the Courier Journal.
The two other officers involved in the case, Myles Cosgrove and Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly, were not indicted.
During a press conference Wednesday announcing the report, Cameron said that Louisville Police knocked and announced their presence, which he says was corroborated by an “independent witness.” He also said Mattingly and Cosgrove were “justified in their use of force after having been fired upon.”
