According to several confirmed reports, it was stated by Breonna Taylor’s boyfriend that she was alive, coughing, and calling for her mother after Louisville Police officers fired more than 20 bullets in the no-knock warrant that took her life.
Kenneth Walker, who actually fired back and struck one of the officers involved in the raid, said, “(Police are) yelling like, ‘Come out, come out,’ and I’m on the phone with her (mom). I’m still yelling help because she’s over here coughing and, like, I’m just freaking out,” in his three-hour-long police interview.
According to dispatch logs, Breonna laid where she fell in her hallway for more than 20 minutes, receiving no medical attention. Officers allegedly were solely focused on getting the injured officer to the hospital, while the log shows that no one went in to help the 25-year-old EMT worker on March 12.
“Breonna, who was unarmed in her hallway, was struck by several rounds of gunfire. She was not killed immediately,” attorneys Sam Aguiar and Lonita Baker wrote in a lawsuit filed on behalf of Breonna’s family.
Plainclothes Louisville Metro Police Department Officers Myles Cosgrove and Brett Hankison, and Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly has yet to be charged with any crime in the death of Breonna Taylor.
