Louisville police execute a no-knock warrant on the wrong home and kill Black EMT employee

Louisville, Kentucky – Pursuing a suspect at the wrong location, the Louisville police execute a no-knock warrant on the wrong home and kill Black EMT employee, Breonna Taylor, 26.

The suspect is being reported by NBC News to have already been in custody.

In NBC’s article, it states the “Police at the time said the officers knocked on the door several times and ‘announced their presence as police who were there with a search warrant.’ The officers forced their way in through the door and ‘were immediately met by gunfire,’ Lt. Ted Eidem said at a March 13 press conference.”

But lawyers representing Taylor’s family argue differently. Attorneys Sam Aguiar, Lonita Baker, and Ben Crump have filed a suit. They are accusing the police department of being plainclothes police officers and using unmarked cars. When they busted into Taylor’s home, her boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, 27, thought the officers were criminals. Taylor called 911 as Walker grabbed his gun to try to protect their household.

Taylor died at the scene from eight gunshot wounds. Walker was arrested and faces charges of assault and attempted murder on a police officer.
