Breonna Taylor was a black EMT who was murdered by Louisville police officers, who had entered her apartment after midnight on a no-knock search warrant.
A no-knock warrant allows law enforcement to enter a property without notifying residents upon entry or identifying themselves as law enforcement. Police opened fire and killed Taylor, after her boyfriend shot one officer in the leg; the officer is expected to fully recover. Taylor’s boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, claims that he was acting in self-defense and feared for his life. It is important to note that the police had not even arrived in uniform. Walker’s actions were in accordance with Stand Your Ground Laws, which allow one to use deadly force against intruders as a method of self-defense. Although police claimed to be investigating Jamarcus Glover (who had already been arrested) and believed that he was using her address to receive drugs, no drugs were found in the apartment. In fact, Breonna Taylor never had any criminal history.
