Feds charge 4 police officers in fatal Breonna Taylor raid

Joshua Jaynes was arrested Thursday morning by federal agents, according to his attorney

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP/WHAS) – The U.S. Justice Department has charged four Louisville police officers involved in the deadly Breonna Taylor raid with civil rights violations.

Federal charges against former officers Joshua Jaynes, Brett Hankison and Kelly Goodlett, along with Louisville police Sgt. Kyle Meany were announced by U.S. Attorney Merrick Garland on Thursday.

According to ABC-affiliate WHAS, Joshua Jaynes was arrested Thursday.

Garland says federal officials “share but cannot fully imagine the grief” felt by Taylor’s family. He said “Breonna Taylor should be alive today.”

Taylor, a 26-year-old Black medical worker, was shot to death by Louisville officers who had knocked down her door while executing the search warrant.
