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.

Police spokesperson Beth Ruoff tells news outlets that Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly is planning to retire from the Louisville Metro Police Department on June 1. 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. Two other officers who fired shots have been fired, including the one who investigators determined fired the fatal shot that killed Taylor.
