Transcript for Louisville police major suspended, under investigation in Breonna Taylor case
Cecilia, we turn now to the latest in the breonna Taylor case. The Louisville police major who executed a warrant that fatal night is under investigation. Alex Perez joins us with that and more. Good morning, Alex. Reporter: Hey, good morning, Michael. Authorities are looking into whether that officer may have improperly pressured investigators about evidence. A police major is under fire for allegedly interfering with the investigation into breonna Taylor's death. Police confirming major Kim burbrink has been reassigned pending an internal investigation into allegations she pressured investigators for sensitive information about evidence collected at the scene of Taylor's killing. One calling it a cross-examination. Major burbrink oversaw the unit that was serving a warrant at Taylor's apartment the night she was shot and killed by police who came looking for drugs and money allegedly connected to Taylor's ex-boyfriend but found police say officers opened fire after Taylor's boyfriend, Kenneth walker, using a legally owned gun fired what he called a warning shot, saying he nor Taylor heard the numerous times police say they announced their presence. I get shot. We return fire. This is not us going hunting somebody down, this is not kneeling on a neck. This is nothing like that. Reporter: Officer Jonathan Mattingly who the FBI found was hit by walker's single shot telling Michael he believes the mistake that cost breonna Taylor her life was tt they did not break down her door sooner. How would you have done it differently if you could have? We would have either served a no knock warrant or done the normal thing we do which is five to ten seconds to not give people time to formulate a plan because if that had happened I'm telling you if that had happened breonna Taylor would be alive. You believe she had and 100%. If you had just stormed in. Yes. And not given them time. I do. Reporter: Only one officer indicted by a grand jury in September with a single count of endangering three of Taylor's neighbors. No one was charged directly in the young emt's death prompting outrage from the public. Reporter: And from jurors a second grand juror coming forward to set the record straight saying the jury was never given the opportunity to consider stronger charges including homicide and overnight Kentucky governor Andy Beshear calling on the attorney general to release all information about the grand jury proceedings in light of the claims made by the jurors. And officials in Louisville have approved a new use of force ordinance as they work to reform the police department. Michael. All right, thank you so much for that, Alex.
