Dead, 1 Injured After Shooting At Breonna Taylor Protest

LMPD Tents overnight stays prohibited at Jefferson Square Park following fatal shooting

Louisville police said reports of shots fired at Jefferson Square Park came in around 9 p.m. Saturday.

Several other people fired gunshots after the suspect began firing, but no one else was hit, Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer said. "That person was taken to University Hospital with non-life threatening injuries", the statement, posted on Facebook, read. "It is a tragedy that this area of peaceful protest is now a crime scene". Shortly after that people are shown running for cover.

The gunman in black shorts and carrying a black backpack is seen raising a weapon in the video and opening fire - with nearly two dozen shots heard ringing out in less than a minute.

A protester speaks with Louisville police officers who were handing out flyers on an overnight camping ban.

Protesters displayed signs with the name and images of Breonna Taylor, who was killed by police.

"All I could hear was: bang, bang". Walker has said he thought he was defending the home from an intruder. "We appreciate the Metro Council taking action to hold our mayor accountable for his role in this cove-rup and his utter failure to be transparent."If he wants to continue leading this community ... he needs to be more transparent", added Piagentini".

Police removed tents from the site and told protesters they could pick them up at a separate location. "A short time later, we got a report of another shooting victim at the Hall of Justice", the police said.

"He had been repeatedly asked by other members at the park to leave due to his destructive behaviour", Schroeder said.

California Governor Orders Los Angeles Bars to Close
Newsom said the order was prompted because of the rise of COVID-19 cases and hospitalization rates across the state. Some officials are cracking down on scofflaw businesses while others are preparing to help overwhelmed hospitals.

Homicide investigators were interviewing the suspect, who had been hospitalised after the shooting, interim Louisville Police Chief Robert Schroeder said at a news conference on Sunday.

The group failed to show up downtown that day, instead gathering in the parking lot of a park several miles away.

"Praying for our city", tweeted Charles Booker, the Kentucky state representative of Louisville.

The incident on Saturday took place at Jefferson Square Park in the centre of Louisville where protestors have gathered for weeks over the killing of African American woman Breonna Taylor. Authorities have not revealed any information about the shooter and whether he was connected to protesters, counterprotesters or any other group.

Following Taylor's death, Sen. She was fatally shot by Louisville Metro Police Department officers on March 13, 2020.

Taylor's boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, who reportedly was a licensed gun owner, shot at officers when they attempted to enter the apartment, and the officers returned fire. Police have cleared the area to investigate. It is being investigated by state and local authorities and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Taylor's killing drew renewed attention after the May 25 death of George Floyd, an African-American man killed after a police officer knelt on his neck for almost nine minutes while detaining him in Minneapolis.
