Back on March 13, Louisville police were executing a search warrant to enter then 26-year-old, Breonna Taylor’s home, however, the police were searching in the wrong home. Under the circumstances of the investigation, the judge permitted the police to enter “without identifying themselves.” When they entered Breonna’s home, her boyfriend thought an intruder was breaking in, and fired the first shot which caused police to shoot several shots, killing Breonna. The police had the wrong home, tragically killing Breonna unjustly.
