"University Hospital with a leg wound and the other who was struck in the abdomen is in stable condition after undergoing significant surgeries. It is expected to recover. Chief Rob Schroeder will have more details about them and information about last night's protests following me in just a few minutes. First I want to emphasize how grateful I am for the work of l m P d. The men and women who are literally putting their lives on the line to protect our people and to protect our city. What we saw last night with the two police officers being shot is obviously completely unacceptable. Violence will only be a source of pain, not a cure for pain, and we know that violence is never the answer. Our community is hurting. Many see Briana Taylor's case as both the tragic death of a young woman in the continuation of a long pattern. A devaluation in violence, the black women and men facing our country. As they have historically. The question, obviously, is. What do we do with this pain? There is no one answer. No easy answer to that question. But I do know this violence is not the answer and destruction is not the answer. Public safety and the work for racial equity and justice can and must co exist. That's the goal that we're working toward. Rating equity in our city for everyone in our city. We in our country obviously have much work to do. We're here in Louisville and myself, are firmly committed that work to make our future. The future of equity for everyone in our country in our city. It's important. I was taking to our streets and those supporting demonstrators from home to understand the power of this moment. You have the attention of the people who lead our government, our businesses, our education and other institutions were listening. We're obviously engaged in this work and ready to do a lot more. We have to do it together. And violence on Ly hurts this cause. When any of us gives in to the temptation to channel anger into violence. We slow our progress. We sacrifice the future for the moment, and that's just another tragedy. We've seen enough tragedy. We never had control over what Attorney General or the grand jury would do? We don't have control over what the FBI will do with its investigation. We do have control over what happens next in our city. So I'm asking everyone to reject violence and join me and committing ourselves to the work of reform for justice and for equity and do that now. We have to respond to what Dr King called the fierce urgency of now because this problem has always been, but it's acutely even more so URGENT today. So we have to come together to create plans to address the wounds that so many in our community are caring and have been carrying and replace them with compassion Connection. Opportunity and justice. Chief's orders now going to give an update on yesterday's activities. Thank you, Mary Fisher. First I would like to start by saying how grateful I am that our two officers who were shot during last night's protests are doing well and we'll survive their injuries. Last night's situation could have been so much worse, or offs are officers and for the people who are protesting when the gunfire rang out. Major Aubrey Gregory. He was the commander of IR. Special operations division and was leading efforts on the ground last night. Was treated and released from University Hospital for a gunshot wound to his hip. Major Gregory joined the department in February of 1999 and has done a tremendous job the past several months. As one of the leaders of our protests efforts. In fact, some say he may be the bedrock of our protest efforts. Officer Robinson days. Roaches was shot in the abdomen last night, having to undergo surgery as a result of his injuries. He's in stable condition and expected to recover. Hauser. Dez Roaches joined the department in March of 2019 and works in our second division. Again. We are extremely fortunate thes. Two officers will recover. At this time, Lorenzo Johnson. Has been charged with two counts of assault, the first degree and 14 counts of wanton endangerment, all directed against police officers. In addition to these officers, we have reports of a police sergeant being injured after being struck by protesters Baton A sergeant who suffered any injury. Well, arresting a resisting individual. And an officer who was exposed to blood and spit after a subject's been upon him during the protests. As for the events of last night, there were several instances of unlawful behavior where police needed to intervene during the protest activities. Including damage to property. Such as businesses along Barzan Road, the moving of barricades and barriers. Restricting traffic and damage to a public works vehicle that was blocking the roadway. Due to the fire's being said at the courthouse in along Jefferson Square Park. We needed to declare an unlawful assembly in the area just after eight PM prior to the curfew taking place. We made several clear announcement to disperse prior to police moving in to clear the park. Throughout the night, We made 127 arrests in various locations, including the highlands in downtown. There were protests related As the night went on, there were several instances of looting outside of the downtown area. We had reports of 16 infant incidents of looting throughout the evening In our 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 6th and 7th division's Areas include Broadway pressed in outer Loop and Power level Road. As a reminder the curfew remains in effect tonight and tomorrow from 9 P.m. to 6:30 A.m.. And we encourage everyone to be lawful and peaceful as they go through their protest activities. I would like to give a special thanks to our state and federal partners. Have helped us out during these events. These include the Kentucky state police, the Kentucky National Guard and a variety of other state and local partners. Kentucky National Guard has been providing US assistance in securing government buildings and other locations throughout the city, as well as several of our other partner agencies. Thank you. Okay, We will now take questions again. I want to remind reporters to please put your questions in the area and identified the media that your with and we'll get you as many as we can. The first question. A is for Ah T. Schroeder from Jeff Clark from Wofl. Or their protest on I'm sorry. Her first question is Why is Johnson being charged with assault and not attempted murder that the investigation's still early and I'm not going? I would have to speak with our public integrity Unit. Investigators determine that answer. I don't have that at this time. The second question. Also, from just Clark is Were there protests on Preston Highway and proper Level road? Why do you believe those burglaries are connected to protest there was looting on President, highway and proper level road. Whether that's directly related the protests or simply people taking advantage of the situation. I cannot advise at this now. Lucas all back from the Courier Journal after his handling duties, usually taking care of my major Gregory as he recovers, So during incidents like this, we go through what's called the incident management system. In the incident command structure these air national standards for handling crises and rank and your position are not relevant. It is, ah, your skills and your abilities. That dictate what position you are in. So in this case, while major Gregory was leading those efforts, Lieutenant Colonel Josh Judah has taken over since Major Gregory's injured. And Andrea Ash of 11 asked how many or what percentage were from out of town residents,.
