The protest rally took place on the evening of June 27 in the central park of the city. According to the agency, the unknown opened fire on the demonstrators. As a result, a man died, another person was hospitalized. There is no threat to his life.

Earlier in June, it was reported that one of three police officers involved in a shootout that resulted in the assassination of Breonna Taylor was fired in the United States. His actions were regarded as absolute indifference to the value of human life.
Breonna Taylor, 26, an ambulance officer, was killed by police: they shot the girl eight times after entering her house in Louisville. Police detained residents of a neighboring house on suspicion of drug trafficking, and they had a tip that the drugs could be stored in Taylor’s house. The family of the murdered girl filed a lawsuit about the unlawful actions of the police, who never received punishment. In May, hundreds of protesters gathered in downtown Louisville, calling for justice for the murder of the girl.
