“Louisville detective fired over killing of Breonna Taylor}

One of three Kentucky police officers involved in the killing of Breonna Taylor this year was fired Tuesday, authorities said.

In a two-page letter to Louisville Metro Police Department detective Brett Hankison, chief Robert J. Schroeder said that the detective violated department rules, procedures and deadly force standards when Taylor was killed.

When Hankison and two other plainclothes officers used a “no-knock” warrant to enter Taylor’s apartment March 13, he “wantonly and blindly” fired 10 rounds, Schroeder wrote.

“I find your conduct a shock to the conscience,” the police chief wrote in a termination letter to Louisville, Kentucky, Detective Brett Hankison.
