Breonna Taylor was a 26-year-old emergency medical technician (EMT) who was shot and killed by Louisville Metro Police on March 13 shortly after they served a no-knock warrant at her apartment at 12:43 a.m. where she and her boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, were sleeping.

Who is Jonathan Mattingly
There are several officers with the last name Mattingly at the police department including Officer Alex Mattingly, Real-Time Crime Center Analyst Kaitlyn Mattingly and Officer Brent Mattingly; it is unclear if any of these individuals are related to Jonathan Mattingly.
During the raid, Mattingly was shot in the upper thigh and the bullet struck his femoral artery, according to local TV station WHAS-11. He underwent surgery on his leg and is expected to make a full recovery, according to LMPD Chief Steve Conrad.
Mattingly’s injuries, inflicted by Walker during the raid, are the basis of the attempted murder charges against Kenneth Walker.
Mayor Greg Fisher told Wave News that Walker’s prosecution will go forward and a special prosecutor will be appointed to investigate the Public Integrity Unit‘s investigation, once it is completed:
My office has been in conversation with Commonwealth Attorney Tom Wine’s office. I understand he will be recusing himself from this case, as he has a conflict – he is handling (the) prosecution of the person who is charged in the shooting of Officer Jonathan Mattingly during the incident.
Taylor’s mother, Tamika Palmer, in a lawsuit against three Louisville Metro Police Department officers that was filed last month in Louisville. Local attorneys Sam Aguiar and Lonita Baker are also representing Palmer.
“Breonna Taylor was shot at least eight times by the officers’ gunfire and died as a result. Breonna had posed no threat to the officers and did nothing to deserve to die at their hands,” reads the complaint, which was filed by Aguiar and Baker.
They are asking for a jury trial as well as compensatory and punitive damages.
Jessie Halladay, a spokeswoman for LMPD, said in an email that an internal investigation into the case is ongoing and declined to comment further.
Shooting and Investigations
According to USA Today, Taylor was listed on the warrant, but not as the main target of LMPD’s drug investigation. The search warrant used to enter Taylor’s home listed Jamarcus Glover and Adrian Walker as the main suspects in their investigation; police believed Glover was using Taylor’s home to receive mail and hide drugs and money.
After police said they tracked him going to and from Taylor’s house, they requested a no-knock warrant for the raid on Taylor’s home, which means police are not legally required to identify immediately themselves when they enter the property; Lt. Ted Eidem of LMPD’s Public Integrity Unit, however, said police did identify themselves in a press conference.
One of the attorneys representing Taylor’s family, national civil rights attorney Ben Crump, said the type of warrant and witness testimony from four witnesses, is proof that the officers did not announce themselves as they claimed. Neither Taylor or her boyfriend had a criminal history or drug convictions and no illegal drugs were ever found in the apartment.
Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear expressed concern about the incident in a Tweet. Former presidential candidate and current California Sen. Kamala Harris has said the Department of Justice should investigate the circumstances surrounding Taylor’s death.
