Black Lives Matter protesters rallied outside Louisville Department of Corrections on Thursday demanding the release of more than 100 people who were arrested during the demonstrations on Wednesday night.
The unrest in which two police officers were shot began after officers involved in the death of Breonna Taylor avoided homicide charges.
In Taylor’s case, officer Brett Hankison was indicted on three counts of wanton endangerment. Two other officers involved in the incident, Myles Cosgrove and Jonathan Mattingly, have not been charged.
Taylor was killed while sleeping in her bed in on March 13, after police officers broke into her apartment under a ‘no-knock warrant’ suspecting her to be part of a drug ring.
The woman was eventually shot eight times as the officers exchanged gunshots with her boyfriend.
