Fox 8 TV in Louisville confirms that two police officers have been shot in downtown Louisville during the riots and unrest following the reading of the indictments in the Breonna Taylor shooting. Their conditions are not known at this time.
Planned riots and protests were intentionally sparked after only one police officer was indicted instead of all three who were involved in the confrontation between Breonna Taylor’s armed boyfriend and police in March.
The FBI SWAT team assembled in Louisville has been activated following the reports that rioters were shooting off live rounds in the area.
The FBI Louisville SWAT team has responded to an LMPD officer being shot and will continue to assist in the investigation.

There’s no word of arrests at this point. Nor do we know the conditions of the officers shot. But you can send your prayers up for their quick recovery.
