Police in Louisville has arrested a man by the name of Larynzo Johnson. He has been charged with wanton endangerment and assault of a police officer. Johnson allegedly shot two police officers. But fortunately, neither officer’s life is in danger, but not for lack of trying.
Johnson allegedly shot the officers after the grand jury’s decision was announced. He is expected to be arraigned o Friday. The arraignment will be remote due to the pandemic.
The two officers were shot at about 8:30 PM after they were told of a large crowd forming at South Brook and East College streets. One officer was shot in the abdomen just below his protective vest. He had to be rushed into surgery. The second officer was hit in the thigh.
His profile picture shows a man wearing a skull mask. He recently shared a news story headlined, “Tulsa Police Video Shows White Driver Resist Cops, Shoot Them Both, Kill 1 And Live To Tell About It.”
He shared a video with a caption by someone else that read, “A white #FtLauderdale cop tries to get violent with peaceful protestors and this black woman/police officer wasn’t having it. 👀💯”
In September, he wrote, “Gang E’M on the video game# I’M bored ass f***…# Who house can i come over i’ll sit in watch u play the game #COD# mad asf frfr. Posting this BS.”
The violence erupted after authorities announced that the officers who shot Taylor will not be criminally charged because her boyfriend opened fire on them first.
One officer was criminally charged with wanton endangerment, but the charge involved bullets that entered nearby apartments. The officer was not charged in Taylor’s death, and there is no conclusive evidence that Taylor was struck by any of Hankison’s bullets.
Attorney General Daniel Cameron said on September 23. He added that the FBI found the fatal bullet came from Cosgrove’s gun, but the investigation concluded Cosgrove was justified in his use of force.
But Johnson will be charged with endangering the lives of multiple officers. He only hit two but there were other officers nearby at the time.
The facts backed up the officers account but the mobs wanted to riot regardless of the outcome.
