Six Louisville Metro Police officers are under investigation by the department’s Professional Standards Unit for their role in the fatal shooting of 26-year-old Breonna Taylor on March 13.
The purpose of the investigation is to determine whether or not the officers violated department policies, according to department spokeswoman Jessie Halladay.
This review is separate from the investigation that is being conducted by the LMPD’s Public Integrity Unit, which forwarded its finding to Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron to determine if the officers should face criminal charges for Breonna’s death.
The officers under investigation by the Professional Standards Unit include:
- Det. Myles Cosgrove
- Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly,
- Det. Joshua Jaynes (who swore out the affidavit for the no-knock warrant)
- Det. Tony James
- Det. Michael Campbell
- Det. Michael Nobles
All of the officers except Jaynes were at Breonna Taylor’s apartment the night she was killed.
Be clear – if any of these officers are found to be in violation of the department’s policies, the most they are facing is a written reprimand or termination.
Justice for Breonna Taylor.
