Hamza “Travis” Nagdy, Leader of Breonna Taylor Protests in Louisville, KY, Killed in Shooting

HeadlineNov 24, 2020

In Kentucky, a leader of the movement demanding justice for Breonna Taylor has been fatally shot. Twenty-one-year-old Hamza “Travis” Nagdy was reportedly struck by multiple bullets during a suspected carjacking early Monday near the University of Louisville campus. Police have released few details and have not named a suspect. Nagdy was well known for leading chants over his bullhorn at Black Lives Matter events demanding that the officers who shot and killed Breonna Taylor in her own home last March be charged with murder. Nagdy voted for the first time just three weeks ago, in the November 3 election.
