  • Louisville’s mayor says one of three police officers involved in the fatal shooting of Breonna Taylor will be fired.

    Mayor Greg Fischer said Friday that interim Louisville police Chief Robert Schroeder has started termination proceedings for Officer Brett Hankison.

    Two other officers remain on administrative reassignment while the shooting is investigated.

    Fischer said officials could not answer questions about the firing because of state law.

    He referred all questions to the Jefferson County attorney’s office.

    Taylor was shot eight times by officers who burst into her Louisville home using a no-knock warrant during a narcotics investigation.

    No drugs were found at her home.

    The release in late May of a 911 call by Taylor’s boyfriend marked the beginning of days of protests in Louisville, fueled by Taylor’s death and the death of George Floyd in police custody in Minneapolis.
