The city of Louisville is under a state of emergency after Kentucky grand jury brought no charges against Louisville police for the killing of Breonna Taylor. In a piece of breaking news, two officers were shot, a Louisiana Metro Police Department spokesperson confirmed as per a Courier-Journal report. Chief Robert Schroeder said in brief press conference on Wednesday, September 23, that the officers were fired on after responding to a separate "shots fired call" at about 8:30 pm, as per an NPR report.

As of now, no names have been released. In an official statement, Schroeder said "they are both non-threatening injuries." While one officer is in stable condition, another is undergoing surgery. Meanwhile, one suspect has been taken into custody.

Loud bangs were heard shortly after 8.30 pm. The incident took place amid protests where people were expressing anger over the deaths of Black people at the hands of police. As per an AP report: "People covered their ears, ran away and frantically looked for places to hide. Police with long guns swarmed the area, then officers in riot gear and military-style vehicles blocked off roadways."

Luke Rudkowski posted: "BREAKING: Police officer shot near protest in Louisville, Kentucky," and then tweeted "Officer down", with another clip. He also wrote: "It looks like some protesters are shooting at police everything is still unconfirmed waiting for more details to come in."



 



 



 

Aaron J Carpenter — city councilman and youngest elected official in the history of Marysville, OH — tweeted, "Two Police Officers have now been shot in Louisville, Kentucky following the Grand Jury’s decision on #BreonnaTaylor. Riots will become commonplace if Joe Biden is elected. Police Departments will be defunded. First Responders will die. Is this an America you want to live in?"



 

Soon, Fallon Glick, evening anchor/reporter for WDRB News, tweeted, "JUST IN — MetroSafe confirms a police officer was just shot at Brook and Broadway. #Louisville." Charlie Kirk tweeted: "BREAKING: A police officer has just been shot in the streets of Louisville in the middle of the Breonna Taylor riots This is out of control. RT if BLM Inc. should immediately be designated a domestic terror organization!"

Even Twitter users slammed the Black Lives Matter as 'terrorists'. "Another Black Lives Matter terrorist opened fire on police, this time in Louisville, injuring two officers during Breonna Taylor riots," Mark Dice tweeted. Tim Young tweeted: "Multiple officers have been shot in Louisville... enough is enough. Stop this bullshit now!" One replied to him: "BLM is a terrorist organization. It's time for the @DOJ to do something about it."
