Two Louisville Cops Shot In Night Of Protests [VIDEO]

The Louisville Courier Journal reports:

Two Louisville Metro Police officers were shot in downtown Louisville Wednesday night, just eight hours after an indictment was returned in the Breonna Taylor case.

Interim LMPD chief Robert Schroeder confirmed two officers were shot and sustained non life-threatening injuries. One officer is in surgery, and the other is alert and in stable condition. Schroeder said a suspect was taken into custody but did not identify that individual or share possible charges.

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 a source with knowledge of the situation. Gov. Andy Beshear posted a video just after 10:30 p.m. asking everyone in Louisville to go home.
