Two More Louisville Officers Terminated over Police Killing of Breonna Taylor

HeadlineDec 30, 2020

In Kentucky, the Louisville Police Department has terminated two more officers involved in the March 13 police killing of Breonna Taylor, a 26-year-old Black emergency room technician who was shot to death in her own home. The officers are Detective Myles Cosgrove, who fired the shot that killed Taylor, and Detective Joshua Jaynes, who prepared the search warrant that led to the fatal raid. Former officer Brett Hankison was indicted by a grand jury in September for wanton endangerment for shooting into the apartment of a neighbor, but no one has been criminally charged over Breonna Taylor’s death.
