A man opened fire at a manifestation in Louisville, Kentucky, USA. Hundreds of people had gathered to seek justice for Ms. Taylor, who died in March of police brutality.
The videos circulating online show a man on the outskirts of Jefferson Square Park firing more than 12 shots at the audience. Manifestos hide under tents and benches. One man died on the spot, another was seriously injured.
Protests in Louisville have intensified since the death of George Floyd. For example, the death of 26-year-old Breanne Taylor was rekindled. When police entered her home on March 13 looking for drugs and a dealer who allegedly operated from Taylor’s apartment, Taylor’s friend Kenneth opened fire. The police answered the bullets and Taylor was hit no less than eight times.
