Kentucky AG Daniel Cameron We Got Ballistics on Breonna Taylor But It' s Not Conclusive. Kentucky ' s Attorney General says his office has finally received the ballistics report he' s been waiting for in the Breonna Taylor case but he says it' s not conclusive and it seems there' s still no end in

Kentucky AG : We are working diligently on Breonna Taylor ’ s investigation. The Kentucky attorney general announced on Sunday that his office has now obtained the FBI ballistics report for the shooting of Breonna Taylor . Cameron has led the investigation into the shooting of Breonna Taylor , who was shot eight times in her own home, allegedly after plainclothes officers busted in

The ballistics report from the Kentucky State Police does not match Kentucky Attorney General David Cameron (R)'s comments that Breonna Taylor's boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, shot a Louisville police officer the night Taylor was killed in her home, according to reports.

The report states that "due to limited markings of comparative value," the 9-mm bullet that hit officer Jonathan Mattingly's thigh was neither "identified nor eliminated as having been fired" from Walker's gun, according to The Courier Journal.

Dismay over Breonna Taylor spills into America's streets

  Dismay over Breonna Taylor spills into America's streets LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Anger, frustration and sadness over the decision not to charge Kentucky police officers for Breonna Taylor’s death poured into America’s streets as protesters lashed out at a criminal justice system they say is stacked against Black people. Activists, celebrities and everyday Americans have been calling for charges since Taylor, an emergency medical worker, was shot multiple times by white officers who entered her home during a narcotics investigation in March.

Kenneth "Kenny" Walker, boyfriend of the late Breonna Taylor , has filed a lawsuit saying he is a victim of police misconduct and that evidence suggests that he did not fire the shot that wounded a Louisville officer the night police executed a no-knock warrant at Taylor ’ s apartment.

Cameron had told reporters the investigation into Taylor's death ruled out any "friendly fire" from former officer Brett Hankison as the source of the shot that went through Mattingly's thigh, and prompted him and officer Myles Cosgrove to return fire. Cameron had said Hankison had been eliminated as the shooter because the three officers were all carrying .40 caliber handguns, while Walker had a 9 mm, the newspaper noted.

But last week, Steve Romines, one of Walker's attorneys, said he had obtained a Louisville police department record that said Hankinson had also been issued a 9 mm firearm, though he declined to share the document with the Courier Journal.

The ballistic report was first reported by Vice News. The outlet published screenshots of a portion of the report provided by Walker's other attorney Rob Eggert.

The other 2 officers who fired shots the night Breonna Taylor was killed were not charged. The question did the AG press for a homicide indictment? We don ' t know, because the proceedings Cameron says Breonna was struck 6 times, and that the forensic reports indicate the one fatal bullet

Romines also told ABC News on Sunday the state police's ballistics report "could not determine that Kenny's shot is who hit Officer Mattingly."

A Kentucky grand jury last week did not bring charges against the officers in the killing of Taylor. They announced three lesser counts of wanton endangerment against Hankison not directly tied to the fatal shooting of Taylor.

Mattingly and Cosgrove fired six and 15 shots, respectively. Cameron said Taylor was shot six times, though only one of the bullet wounds proved to be fatal.

Cameron said Cosgrove fired the fatal shot but said both Cosgrove and Mattingly were justified in their use of deadly force under Kentucky law because Walker had fired first.
