LOUISVILLE, Ky. – The Louisville Metro Police Department has officially fired two detectives and sanctioned others for their actions surrounding the raid that left Breonna Taylor, 26, dead in her apartment.
Detectives Myles Cosgrove and Joshua Jaynes, who were fired Tuesday, are the latest detectives the department has terminated in connection with the fatal police shooting of Taylor.
A third detective, Brett Hankison, was fired in June for “blindly” firing 10 rounds into her apartment.
Cosgrove, who the FBI concluded fired the shot that killed Taylor, violated procedures for use of force, and failing to use a body camera during the March 13 search warrant.
Jaynes, meanwhile, the officer who secured the search warrant for Taylor’s apartment, was found in violation of department policy for truthfulness and search warrant preparation.
