Jon Mattingly: Officer Involved In Breonna Taylor Shooting Sends Candid Email To LMPD Colleagues

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) – LMPD Sgt. Jon Mattingly confirmed to WAVE 3 News that he sent a strongly-worded email to his department colleagues early Tuesday morning.

In the email, Mattingly, one of three LMPD officers involved in the deadly Breonna Taylor shooting in March, referred to some protesters as thugs, saying they will “throw bricks, bottles and urine” on officers, and will “get in your face and yell, curse and degrade you.”

When LMPD Interim Chief Robert Schroeder was asked about the email at a news conference Tuesday morning, he said, “It’s a little premature to talk about that. It’s something developing, so we’ll have something out later.”

Mattingly and two other narcotics officers fired their guns the night of the Taylor raid, which left the 26-year-old bleeding to death on the floor of her apartment hallway. Her death has sparked more than 100 days of local protests at a time when the country is confronted with a racial reckoning.
