Kentucky Attorney General Announces Grand Jury Decision in Breonna Taylor Shooting.
On September 23rd, 2020 the Kentucky Attorney General, Daniel Cameron, held a press conference describing actions taken to come to a conclusion in the matter of the Breonna Taylor shooting incident involving Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly and Detective Miles Cosgrove.
After careful investigating into all pieces of the incident it was determined that the two officers involved were justified in their return fire after being fired upon by Breonna Taylor’s then boyfriend Kenneth Walker who admitted to firing the first shot at the officers.
The officers had a no knock search warrant for Breonna‘a apartment yet still knocked before entering the residence. The warrant was a part of a 4 year investigation into drug trafficking in which Kenneth Walker and Breonna Taylor had been involved in. The Grand Jury will indict Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly for firing the last deadly shot and states that he is innocent until proven guilty.
