Charges against Breonna Taylor's boyfriend permanently dropped

The charges of assault and attempted murder of a police officer against Kenneth Walker, Breonna Taylor's boyfriend, were permanently dropped on Monday. On March 13, three policemen entered Taylor's apartment on a search warrant and Walker fired a shot, injuring one police officer's leg thinking they were intruders.

"After the worst year of [Walker's] life, prosecutors have finally acknowledged that he did nothing wrong and acted in self-defence," so Walker's lawyer Steve Romines. "He looks forward to continuing the fight to hold the real wrongdoers accountable for the harm that they've caused. Both he, individually, and our community, as a whole, cannot begin the process of healing until that happens."
