Breonna Taylor grand jury charges explained: One of three charged | SEPTEMBER 23, 2020
Brett Hankison, the former Louisville police officer who fatally shot Breonna Taylor, has been indicted by a grand jury on three counts of wanton endangerment in the first degree.
Two other officers involved in the March shooting -- Sgt. John Mattingly and Det. Myles Cosgrove -- were not charged following months of demonstrations calling for the arrests of all the officers.
The long-awaited findings of a grand jury probe into the fatal police shooting were to be announced by Kentucky's Attorney General Daniel Cameron Wednesday afternoon.
Demonstrators at makeshift memorial to Taylor in downtown Louisville called for Cameron to step down after the charges were announced in court and the former's detective's bond was set at $15,000.
The announcement comes more than six months after Taylor, a 26-year-old Black EMT and aspiring nurse, was shot to death by Louisville police officers in her home.
The officers broke down the door to her apartment while executing a late-night, "no-knock" warrant in a narcotics investigation on March 13.
