On Sunday morning, the Kentucky State Police released a ballistics report that did not support the assertion of state Attorney General Daniel Cameron that Taylor’s boyfriend shot a Louisville police officer the night she was killed.
It was huge news that was spread all over social media by LeBron James who quickly reacted to it to get the info out.
“Reports say that the first ballistics report conducted by the Kentucky State Police — first obtained by VICE News this week — could not definitively say for a fact if the 9-mm bullet that struck LMPD Officer Mattingly was, in fact, from Breonna’s BF, Kenneth Walker.
In relation to the bullet that went through Mattingly’s leg — which he asserted had come from Walker firing from down the hall — the initial KSP report reportedly says, in part, “due to limited markings of comparative value, [the] item was neither identified nor eliminated as having been fired from #45.” #45 pertains to the magazine in Walker’s gun.”
This news comes days after finding out no officers were charged for the death of Taylor. A Jefferson County judge stated Sgt. Jon Mattingly and Det. Myles Cosgrove were “justified in their use of force,” therefore, they were not charged in the death of Taylor. One officer was indicted for wanton endangerment, but that had nothing to do with the actual death of Breonna Taylor.
“I’ve been lost for words today!” the Lakers superstar tweeted Wednesday. “I’m devastated, hurt, sad, mad! We want Justice for Breonna yet justice was met for her neighbors apartment walls and not her beautiful life. Was I surprised at the verdict. Absolutely not but damnit I was & still am hurt and heavy hearted! I send my love to Breonna mother, family and friends! I’m sorry! I’m sorry! I’m sorry!!”
