A video shows an officer who, according to Vice News, appears to be former Detective Brett Hankison, who enters Taylor’s apartment after the shootings and asks about cartridges on the floor. He is soon told by another unidentified officer to “resign” until the LMPD’s Public Integrity Division arrives. Hankison’s attorney declined to comment on the video.
In another video that, according to Vice News, was the moment Breonna Taylor̵
Walker’s attorney Steve Romines said he saw the footage as part of his portrayal with Walker and confirmed its accuracy.
Initially, Walker was charged by a Jefferson County grand jury with attempted police officer murder and assault. In May, Walker’s defense attorney Rob Eggert filed a motion to dismiss the charges on the grounds that the grand jury had been misled by prosecutors.
Romines claims Walker didn’t shoot Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly’s thigh and a Kentucky State Police ballistic report do not support prosecutors’ claims that the one bullet that Walker fired hit Mattingly.
“Ballistics later came back from Kentucky State Police, finding that the shot they claimed hit Officer Mattingly could not be determined to be from (Walker’s) gun,” Romines said Friday to CNN’s Chris Cuomo.
There was no video or body camera footage of the officers trying to carry out the search warrant on Breonna Taylor, Cameron said at a press conference last week announcing charges against Hankison. Cameron said body camera footage will begin at the point the patrolmen arrived on site.
The Louisville Subway Police Department issued a statement to CNN saying, “We have no comment on this matter. This file has not yet been released by the department at this time. Our internal review of this case is pending closed so it would not be appropriate to comment. ” . “
Taylor’s family lawyers, when asked about the videos, say they are not allowed to comment on the confidential files that are under a protection order.
Sam Aguiar, the lawyer for Taylor’s family, said in a news conference on Friday that there are up to 50 videos of LMPD body cameras taken from the night Taylor was killed.
To date, the Louisville Metro Police Department and Kentucky state officials have alleged that police officers who executed the nightly warrant without knocking on March 13 were not wearing body cameras. The Louisville Mayor’s office did not respond to a request for comment. The Kentucky Attorney General also did not return a request for comment.
