"i'm extremely happy to report that one of them was treated and released from university hospital with a leg wound.

And the other who was struck in the abdomen is in stable condition after undergoing significant surgeries, and is expected to recover."

Although protests started peacefully, there were reports of garbage can fires, damaged vehicles and looting.

Police made 127 arrests.

The protests came after months of waiting for a decision in taylor's case.

Former louisville detective brett hankison was indicted for endangering lives when he fired 10 shots into an apartment next to taylor's.

Hankison was arrested and released on bail.

Officers jonathan mattingly and miles cosgrove, who fired the shot that killed taylor, will not face criminal charges.

"use of force by mattingly and cosgrove was justified to protect themselves."

Taylor was killed on march 13th, as police executed a no-knock search warrant for drugs and money.

Neither were found.

Her boyfriend kenneth walker says he believed the police were intruders so he fired a single shot which hit mattingly in the thigh.

Police returned fire.

Walker has maintained police did not identify themselves before they used a battering ram on the door.

Cameron said the officers did knock and announce.

That information was corroborated by another witness.

But attorneys for walker and taylor say áthatá witness initially told police he did ánotá hear the officers announce themselves.

And an additional 12 neighbors said the same thing.

Attorneys want to know what evidence the grand jury was shown.

"we are demanding that he release that transcript so we can see if there is any evidence...did breonna have any voice in that grand jury proceeding?"" the f-b-i is conducting a separate investigation into the case.

One of the things it's examining is, if police used false information to obtain the warrant.

Hankison is also under investigation by an f-b-i led task force for sexual assault allegations unrelated to the breonna taylor case.
