Trial for Ex-Cop Brett Hankison, Who Shot into Breonna Taylor’s Home During Fatal Raid, Starts in KY

HeadlineFeb 23, 2022

In Louisville, Kentucky, the trial of ex-police officer Brett Hankison starts today. In March 2020 he fired 10 shots during a botched no-knock police raid that killed Breonna Taylor in her own home. Hankison is charged with wanton endangerment not for shooting into Taylor’s apartment, but for hitting her white neighbor’s apartment during the raid. No one has been charged for killing Breonna Taylor in her own home.
