LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — The Louisville police officer who fired at Breonna Taylor after being shot during the deadly raid on Taylor’s apartment is retiring.

Breonna Taylor

Breonna Taylor, a 26-year-old Louisville emergency medical technician studying to become a nurse, was shot multiple times in March 2020 after being roused from sleep by police. 

Mattingly was shot in the leg during the March 13, 2020, raid. Taylor's boyfriend fired at him after believing an intruder was breaking into the apartment. Mattingly was shot in the femoral artery, but has recovered.

Mattingly said in a statement that the U.S. Justice Department's announcement this week that it is investigating the Louisville Metro Police Department did not affect his decision.
