The day before the anniversary of Breonna Taylor’s death, her boyfriend Kenneth Walker III filed a federal lawsuit against the Louisville Metro Police Department and the officers involved in last year’s fatal raid that seeks damages for violations of his constitutional rights, according to a lawsuit filed Friday and obtained by CNN. The lawsuit stems from the flawed forced-entry raid at Taylor’s apartment on March 13, 2020. Walker, thinking officers were intruders, fired one shot as officers broke down the door, hitting Sgt. John Mattingly in the leg, authorities said. The officers returned a barrage of gunfire throughout the apartment, killing Taylor. Walker was arrested and charged with shooting at an officer, but those charges were initially dismissed last year and then dismissed with prejudice, or permanently, last week.
