Louisville Police Arrest 127 Overnight Including Suspect Accused Of Shooting Two Cops

The two police officers injured by gunfire at a Breonna Taylor protest in Louisville Wednesday night were recovering Thursday as officials identified the suspect accused of shooting them.

Larynzo Johnson, 26, was taken into custody at 8:40 p.m., according to an arrest citation listing two charges of first-degree assault on a police officer and multiple counts of first-degree wanton endangerment — the same charge passed down on former LMPD officer Brett Hankison for Taylor’s death, according to Daily News.


Louisville, Kentucky, police announced Thursday morning that more than 100 people were arrested overnight during a rash of unrest connected to yesterday’s grand jury indictments in the Breonna Taylor case. Those arrested include a 26-year-old black man accused of shooting two police officers.

Wednesday night, demonstrators took to the streets to protest the grand jury’s decision to charge only one of several officers involved in the shootout that resulted in Taylor’s death. Detective Brett Hankison was charged with three counts of wanton endangerment for firing his service weapon into several apartments other than Taylor’s. Two other officers, who also fired their weapons, Kentucky Republican Attorney General Daniel Cameron, said, were found to be “justified” in their response because Taylor’s boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, fired on police first.

As the Daily Wire reported, several police officers were shot amid the demonstrations that rocked Louisville last night. Two of those officers were rushed to a local hospital where they underwent emergency treatment. Both officers sustained non-life-threatening injuries and both are expected to recover.

“One officer was shot in the abdomen below their bulletproof vest and is in surgery, and a second was shot in the thigh, according to the source,” the Louisville Courier-Journal reported. “MetroSafe said it received reports the shooting occurred at South Brook Street and Broadway Avenue.” More

So, a grand jury of their peers file no murder charges and they retaliate by trying to burn their own city down and shooting cops? Sounds like our education system may be failing them more than our criminal justice system.

Arresting them is one thing but setting the bail high enough to keep them off the streets for a little while is another thing entirely. Set their bail high enough as to not get immediately bailed out by the mob.
