One man was killed and another person was injured during a peaceful protest in Louisville, Kentucky on Saturday night. Protestors had gathered at Jefferson Square Park to demand justice for Breonna Taylor when a man fired over a dozen shots at the protestors. The park was cleared and closed by police so homicide detectives can conduct their investigation to identify the people involved with the shooting.

In a statement on Facebook, Louisville mayor Greg Fischer wrote he was "deeply saddened by the violence that erupted in Jefferson Square Park tonight, where those who have been voicing their concerns have been gathered."
