The decision not to charge officers in the US over the killing of Breonna Taylor has led to the shooting of two policemen.
Serious protest started after the killing of 26 year-old lady and black hospital worker, who was shot multiple times as three officers raided her home on 13 March, BBC reports.
Meanwhile, a grand jury in the city of Louisville indicted one of the officers with “wanton endangerment” for shots which hit a neighbour’s apartment.
After the death of Taylor, the attorney general said the two other officers’ actions had been justified.
One of the officers had been hit by a shot fired by Ms Taylor’s boyfriend, who later told police he thought it was Ms Taylor’s ex-boyfriend who had broken into the apartment.
Before Taylor’s incident occurred, the death of George Floyd in police custody in Minneapolis in May has also triggered other cases of killings of unarmed black people by police. These occurrences in the past have fuelled anger across the US and beyond.
Commenting on the incident, Louisville Police Chief Robert Schroeder said the police officers shot on Wednesday did not have life-threatening injuries. He also disclosed that a suspect was in custody.
At the moment, a state of emergency has been declared in Louisville and the National Guard have also been deployed.
