Two officers have been shot as thousands of people protest in the US city of Louisville after a grand jury decided no-one would be charged with the death of Breonna Taylor.


Ms Taylor, 26, a hospital worker, was shot multiple times as officers stormed her home on 13 March, reports BBC.


Brett Hankison has been charged, not with Ms Taylor's death, but with "wanton endangerment" for firing into a neighbour's apartment in Louisville.


Two other officers face no charges.


Louisville Police Chief Robert Schroeder said the officers conditions are not life-threatening.


He added that a suspect is in custody.


A state of emergency has been declared in Louisville and the National Guard have also been deployed.
