One of the officers connected to Breonna Taylor's shooting is suing Taylor's boyfriend.

Louisville Police Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly filed a civil suit against Kenneth Walker accusing him of battery, assault and causing emotional distress.

Walker has said he thought the officers were intruders.

In a statement to several news outlets, Walker's attorney called the lawsuit a "baseless attempt to further victimize and harass Kenny."
