One dead after shooting at Breonna Taylor protest park

Man fatally shot during protest at park in Kentucky

Louisville police investigating shooting at Breonna Taylor protests

Kenneth Walker, Taylor's boyfriend, was originally charged with attempted murder after he fired a shot at one of the officers who came into the home.

One person died and another was injured in a shooting late on Saturday in Louisville, Kentucky's Jefferson Square Park, which has become a centre for protests against the police killing of a Black woman in her home in March.

Police are investigating but no information has been released about arrests, or details about the victims.

For weeks, the park has been the epicentre for protests in Louisville after the police killings of Ms Taylor and George Floyd, who died last month at the hands of Minneapolis police.

This is not the first shooting in Louisville at a protest dedicated to Taylor.

Video on social media appeared to show a man opening fire as people ran for safety, while later scenes showed at least one person on the ground bleeding.

One person was killed and another wounded in a shooting at a Black Lives Matter rally in the USA state of Kentucky, police said. That person was hospitalized with injuries that were not life-threatening.

Following the shooting, the LMPD announced that "peaceful gatherings can continue during the day", but people will no longer be able to stay overnight at the park, and no tents are permitted.
