Federal Buildings in Louisville Boarded Up Ahead of Breonna Taylor Grand Jury Decision

Two federal buildings and some attached offices in Louisville, Ky., were boarded up Sunday in anticipation of a grand jury’s decision whether to level criminal charges against the officers involved in the shooting death of Breonna Taylor.

The shuttered buildings, which include the Gene Snyder U.S. Courthouse and Customs House, will be closed Sept. 21-25, according to an order signed Friday by Chief Judge Greg Stivers, Fox News reported.

While it has remained unclear which, if any, of the three officers involved in Taylor’s death at her home will face homicide charges, protesters and the attorney representing her family have demanded that they all be charged with at least second-degree manslaughter.

Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron will soon present his findings in the case to the grand jury, though he hasn’t given a timeline.

The March 13 death of Taylor, a 26-year-old EMT, sparked months of protests in Louisville.

Police obtained a “no-knock” warrant to enter Taylor’s apartment as part of a drug investigation.

Taylor and her boyfriend Kenneth Walker were in bed when police attempted to enter, and Walker said he fired once at the officers, believing they were intruders.

Investigators say police were returning fire when they shot Taylor several times.

No drugs were found in the home, and Taylor was unarmed.
