ABC News reported the following yesterday:
The suspect behind Saturday’s fatal shooting in Louisville, Kentucky, has been arrested.
Steven Nelson Lopez was taken into custody by police after being caught on surveillance video opening fire in Jefferson Square Park during a protest against Breonna Taylor’s death.
Lopez will be charged with murder, according to authorities.
On Saturday night, Lopez shot into the crowd of protesters and fatally injured a photographer, Tyler Gerth, 27, who died at the scene despite paramedics’ help.
Another protester was also injured, and Lopez was taken to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
One America News reports:
According to authorities, the suspect had already been arrested multiple times in recent weeks for his behavior.
“We are conferring with the attorney’s office on appropriate charges to be filed. This man had been participating in the protests since they began. He had been arrested a couple of times over the past several weeks. He had been repeatedly asked by other members in the park to leave due to his disruptive behavior.” – Chief Robert Schroeder, Louisville Police Department
Protesting is legal. Looting and rioting are not.
