New Breonna Taylor crime scene photos show bullet holes & blood on walls after fatal cop shooting during 'no knock' raid
NEW crime scene photos depicting the aftermath of the fatal cop raid on Breonna Taylor's apartment show bullet holes, shattered glass and blood on the walls, with one attorney saying police "fired blindly" into the home.
Taylor was shot dead by police at her home in Louisville, Kentucky, on March 13, and the newly released images, of which there are 1200, reveal shell casings scattered "everywhere", reported the Courier Journal.
The 26-year-old emergency medical technician, who worked for two local hospitals, had no criminal history.
Taylor was killed during a "no knock" drug raid on her house, when cops were looking for suspect Jamarcus Glover, who allegedly dated Breonna two years ago.
But the man was arrested in a separate raid 10 miles away on the same night officers broke into her apartment.
Leaked documents reveal Glover had mail sent to Breonna Taylor's address, gave her phone number as his own and used a car she hired that was later connected to a murder.
No drugs or cash were found at Taylor's home.
Taylor's boyfriend Kenneth Walker – who was not the man wanted by cops – fired one shot with his legally held weapon, claiming he thought they were burglars.
Three officers returned fire with a hail of bullets that killed the frontline medic.
Attorney Steve Romines, who represents Walker, told The Courier Journal, who obtained the pictures, the photos show police were "repeatedly firing blindly in multiple directions with no identifiable target, which is the very definition of wanton conduct."
Cops said they had seen Glover pick up a USPS package at Breonna’s home and drive to a “known drug house”.
But a Louisville postal inspector, Tony Gooden, told a local news station that Louisville police did not check with his office about Breonna’s apartment.
He said another law enforcement agency had asked his office in January to investigate for suspicious mail arriving at her home, but they concluded there were none.
