A ballistic report by the Kentucky State Police, according to one report, refutes claims that Breonna Taylor’s friend shot police officers.
Kentucky attorney general Daniel Cameron said two officers were authorized to fire their guns because Taylor’s friend Kenneth Walker fired a shot at them.
The KSP report says, “Due to limited markings of comparative value,” the 9mm bullet that Sgt hit and left. John Mattingly was not identified as “identified or discharged” by Walker’s gun.
Cameron said Taylor was shot six times the night she died, but only one of the shots was fatal. Sgt. John Mattingly had entered the house after the door was broken and he was once shot in the leg by Walker, Taylor̵

Cameron said the fatal bullet was fired by Cosgrove, but added that Cosgrove and Mattingly were justified in using force because they were shot first. Cameron said state law “prevents us from bringing charges over Breonna Taylor’s death.” Cameron also said there was no conclusive evidence that any of the 10 Hankison shots hit Taylor at her home. But Hankison was charged with three wanton threats for firing gunshots that went into another house with people.
A grand jury on Wednesday charged one of the officers, Brett Hankison, with three wanton threats for firing shots that took people into another house. But the jury did not charge any of the officers on charges directly related to Taylor’s death.
