Kaitlin Rust, a reporter for WAVE 3 News, appeared to have been hit with non-lethal bullets fired by a Louisville Metro Police Department officer amid heated protests in downtown Louisville Friday evening, reports WAVE 3 News.
Several hundred protesters demonstrated downtown in response to a trio of LMPD officers being involved in the March death of Breonna Taylor, who was shot dead when a no-knock warrant was served at her home.
Earlier Friday, Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer announced he plans to suspend no-knock warrants.
On Thursday evening, at least seven civilians were shot amid the protests in downtown Louisville.
Friday’s protests come as multiple cities across the U.S. are experiencing protests over the death of George Floyd, who died Monday after a now fired-Minneapolis police officer put his knee on his neck while in custody.
