After a man was killed by LMPD and the Kentucky National Guard in Louisville, @GovAndyBeshear says he is working to get the video released as soon as possible – hopefully today – and having Kentucky State Police investigate, instead of LMPD.

David „Yaya“ McAtee was assassinated by the LMPD and National Guard last night in the West End of Louisville, KY. They are currently occupying my neighborhood. I am out here in a bulletproof vest. Please tell every media outlet to send the choppers.

The National Guard was involved in a fatal shooting in Louisville.

A man was killed early Monday in Louisville, Ky., when police officers and National Guard troops were breaking up a group of protesters. Someone in the crowd fired at them, and the troops and officers fired back, the authorities said.

The shooting happened just after midnight, the authorities said, when officers from the Louisville Metro Police Department and the National Guard soldiers were enforcing the city’s curfew. The group of protesters had gathered outside a market in a neighborhood west of downtown.
