Two Officers Have Been Shot By Black Lives Matter Criminals In Louisville This Evening Following The Grand Jury Announcement Regarding The Death Of Breonna Taylor Earlier Today

Update: The count has risen to three – one shot in the head, one in the vest, one in the leg.

Amidst the increasingly tense demonstrations in Louisville after today’s announcement in the Breonna Taylor case, tensions came to a head and shots rang out in the immediate metro area. Though details are currently sparse, captured video shows the altercation transpire.

Multiple Videos Recorded The Moment Gunfire Erupted:

From what can can be gleaned, multiple shots were fired at police with two officers down. As gunfire rings out, protesters flee and massive police presence rapidly unfurls. Ambulances arrive within seconds and protesters are forced down the sidewalk to clear the immediate area. “They shot at police… They didn’t shoot in the air, they shot at them…” a protester can be heard saying on video. Louisville Metro Police switched from non-lethal rounds to wielding real rifles in response to the officer-involved shooting.
