Hours after Louisville police officers shot and killed Breonna Taylor, investigators interviewed a witness – her boyfriend. Kenneth Walker recounted the chaos of that night, saying how scared he felt when they busted in and opened fire. (Oct. 7)
KENNETH WALKER: So it's a loud boom at the door. First thing she said was, who is it? No response. So we like, what the heck? We both get up, start putting on clothes. Another knock at the door. She's like, who it? Loud, at the top of her lungs. No response. Next thing I know, she's on the ground, and the doors busted open. And I hear a bunch of yelling, and just-- I'm just panicking. And I'm telling somebody-- I'm yelling help, because she's right here bleeding. And nobody's coming, and I'm just confused, and scared, and-- I feel the same right now. In the police car on the ride over here, we pulled over in a parking lot somewhere, and a guy came to my window. And he was asking my name he was like-- first thing I said to him was, was she alive? He was like, well we'll talk about that when you get to where you're going. I lost it. And he was like, I just want to let you know right now, that all of this was a-- we had a-- they had a misunderstanding or something like that. To me, it seemed like they realized that they were at the wrong place.
