Man shot dead in Kentucky anti-racism protest

In Louisville, Kentucky, a man opened fire on protesters last night. A man was hit and died of his injuries, a second victim was taken to hospital injured.

In the park where the attack took place, a protest was in progress following the death of Breonna Taylor in March this year. The 26-year-old black woman was killed in her home by police bullets. …

The police have not yet revealed anything about the circumstances of the shooting incident last night. It is also not clear whether the gunman was arrested or identified. …

George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis in late May has also sparked protests against racism and police brutality in Louisville. The case of Breonna Taylor was also put into the spotlight again.

The agents who were involved in the raid on her house in March had a so-called ‘no-knock warrant’, which allowed them to invade without notice. …

After Taylor’s death, the city council put an end to the no-knock warrants.
