Fatal shooting at Louisville park where demonstrators had gathered

Louisville: A person died in a shooting on Saturday night at a park in downtown Louisville, Kentucky, where demonstrators had gathered to protest the death of Breonna Taylor.

Louisville Metro police said officers received reports of shots being fired at Jefferson Square Park at around 9 pm.

The reports were followed by calls that the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department was performing life-saving measures on a male who died at the scene.

Shortly after, police were told of a shooting victim across the street at the Hall of Justice. That person was hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries.

Officers cleared the park and police are trying to gather as much information as possible to identify all who were involved in the incident, a police statement said.

No information about arrests, possible suspects and the victims’ identities and ages were immediately released. Officials did not immediately release additional information.

Taylor, a 26-year-old Black woman, was killed in her Louisville home in March by police who were serving a no-knock warrant.

Protesters have been calling for the officers involved in her death to be charged. One of the officers was recently fired.
