LMPD body camera footage shows the moments of chaos and confusion in the aftermath of the March 13 Breonna Taylor shooting.

Louisville Courier Journal

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Everywhere there was confusion and chaos.

“10-30! 10-30! Officer down! Officer shot on Springfield!” an officer frantically told a dispatcher.

Body cameras worn by Louisville Metro Police officers who raced to the St. Anthony Gardens apartment complex around 1 a.m. March 13 captured the frantic aftermath on tape.

An officer was shot, they were told. The shooter was still in the apartment.

What they weren’t told — not right away — was that a 26-year-old woman was shot dead inside.

Her name was Breonna Taylor.

The dramatic video footage from the officers who arrived on the scene was released last week as part of the investigative file into Taylor’s death.
