Breonna Taylor was a 26 years old Black medical worker who got shot and killed in a raid by police on an apartment where she was sleeping on the 13th of March 2020.
The Louisville officers knocked on Taylor’s door while executing a search warrant; when her boyfriend fired a shot that hit an officer, the officers returned fire, striking the victim multiple times.
The 26-year-fatal old’s shooting contributed to the racial justice demonstrations that shook the US in the summer and spring of 2020. If only the officer hadn’t fired several shots, the medical would still be alive and going about his daily business like everyone else.
According to AP News, one of the officers, Brett Hankison, fired ten bullets into Breonna’s two-bedroom apartment, some of which ricocheted off the walls and nearly struck another man. Our thoughts and prayers are with Taylor’s family as they deal with the unimaginable loss they have experienced. May her soul rest in peace in paradise.
The story is still developing, so more updates will be provided as new details about the case become available.
