Judge Dismisses Charges Against Kenneth Walker In Officer Shooting (Update)


A judge with the Jefferson County Circuit Court has dismissed the charges against Kenneth Walker with prejudice. As many of you know, Kenneth was accused of shooting an officer last year when they made their way into Breonna Taylor’s apartment during a raid when they ultimately killed her. As previously reported, Kenneth mentioned several times that he did not know that the officers were at the door before they made their way inside.

According to WLKY, after the shooting, Kenneth was charged with assault and attempted murder after Metro police Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly was shot in the leg.

On Monday, the charges against Kenneth were dropped with prejudice. The charges against him were previously dropped last May but without prejudice, which means they could have been refiled if new information came to light.

Last October, Kenneth spoke out in his first interview since the shooting and claimed that one of the officers told him it was unfortunate that he wasn’t shot during the shooting.

Kenneth spoke to Gayle King in detail about the shooting and described leaving the apartment and being swarmed by police and said, “I didn’t know what to think, and I really wasn’t worried about me. Only reason I’m even out here is because only way for her to get help in there is for me to be out here.”

CBS News reports that in a court filing, prosecutors said investigations “into this matter have concluded and no new information relevant to the charges against (Walker) in this matter has been brought to the Commonwealth’s attention.”
