Man, 23, is arrested in fatal shooting at Breonna Taylor demonstration

A 23-year-old man was arrested in the fatal shooting of a photographer documenting a Breonna Taylor protest at a park in Louisville, Kentucky, Saturday night, police said.

Steven Lopez is being held in connection with the shooting death of 27-year-old Tyler Gerth, who was fatally wounded after bullets were fired at the Taylor demonstration, according to an arrest citation.

Lopez, who had been seen at other protests and was previously arrested with other demonstrators, was wounded in the leg by gunfire from bystanders at the park who were defending themselves, the arrest citation said.

He has been charged with murder and wanton endangerment.

Northwest Woodsman: It shouldn’t be necessary by now for me to reiterate my suggestion to avoid them by ten nautical miles. Almost every activity involving them results in some sort of violence. Peaceful demonstrations such as anti gun rally’s, sports team wins, funerals, birthdays, BBQs, high school athletics, and more, are likely to end up in violence. It’s in the DNA.
