Brett Hankison was one of the three officers who were involved with the death of 26 year old Breonna Taylor. Taylor, an ER technician, died on March 13 after police in Louisville, Kentucky, executed a “no-knock” warrant at her apartment during a narcotics i..., shooting her at least eight times.
As three officers forced their way into Taylor’s apartment, her boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, shot and wounded Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly, who along with detectives Myles Cosgrove and Hankison fired more than 20 rounds.Walker was charged with attempted murder of a police officer, but that charge was dismissed in May.
"Chief Schroeder is today initiating termination procedures against Louisville Metro police officer Brett Hankson," Mayor Greg Fischer said.
According to his termination letter, Hankison violated procedure when he fired 10 rounds into Breonna Taylor's apartment while executing a search warrant the night of her death.
"I have determined you violated Standard Operating Procedure...when your actions displayed an extreme indifference to the value of human life when you wantonly and blindly fired ten rounds into the apartment of Breonna Taylor," the letter says.
Schroeder also said Hankison violated procedure by using deadly force without knowing the force was directed at a person who posed an immediate threat. He said some of the shots fired went into the apartment next to Taylor's.
"In fact the ten rounds you fired were into a patio door and window which were covered with material that completely prevented you from verifying any person as an immediate threat or more importantly any innocent persons present" the letter says.
Schroeder also said Hankison had previously been been disciplined for "reckless conduct that injured an (sic) innocent person," and was disciplined January 9, 2019.
Fischer said neither he nor Schroeder can discuss the announcement any further due to a state law that says no public statements can be made concerning an alleged violation of departmental rules "until final disposition of charges."
The mayor previously announced a broader review into allegations of sexual assault against Hankison, which came out following his involvement in the Breonna Taylor case.
Two women allege Hankison sexually assaulted them during a night out while he was in uniform.
"He drove me home in uniform, in his marked car, invited himself into my apartment and sexually assaulted me while I was unconscious," one woman wrote on social media.
Fischer said the LMPD's Public Integrity Unit had previously opened an investigation into allegations June 11.
