The sounds of gunfire erupted at Jefferson Square Park Saturday night in Louisville, Kentucky, during a protest over the officer-involved shooting death of Breonna Taylor.

Video which captured the sounds of gunfire was posted to YouTube by the Telegraph. It shows people scrambling for cover as shots ring out:


The New York Post reported that one person was killed and another wounded when the shots were fired.

The Post also noted that there is no information on the type of gun used nor is it clear whether all the gun shots were from the attacker. Some of the gun shots may have been the sounds of police returning fire.

People had begun congregating and camping in the park as a means of protesting Breonna Taylor’s death, but the Louisville Metropolitan Police Department (LMPD) said the camp will be cleared following the shooting.

The LMPD used Twitter to explain their plans:
