An ex-officer for the Louisville Police Department has been indicted on three counts of first-degree wanton endangerment. Brett Hankison was indicted by a Kentucky grand jury on Sept. 23, 2020.
Hankison is one of the officers who was involved in the shooting death of Breonna Taylor on March 13, 2020. Two other officers involved in the shooting incident, Sergeant Jonathan Mattingly and Detective Myles Cosgrove. The grand jury did not indict them.
Judge Annie O’Connell read off Hankison’s charges which the accused allegedly “wantonly shot a gun” into three separate apartments. The owners of those apartments were only identified by their initials. However, it should be mentioned none of those initials belonged to Taylor.
This means that Hankinson was not found to have fired his weapon brazenly into Taylor’s apartment. Judge O’Connell has placed a $15,000 cash bond for him.
