The Louisville police officer who fatally shot Breonna Taylor is currently raising money to fund his retirement.
Detective Myles Cosgrove was one of three Louisville officers who fired shots into Taylor’s apartment last March after breaking in to serve a search warrant related to Taylor’s ex-boyfriend.
Taylor, an emergency room technician, died from multiple gunshot wounds sustained in the botched raid.
Now, Cosgrove is seeking funds on the “Christian crowdfunding site” GiveSendGo so he can “purchase the remainder of his service time” and retire, according to the fundraiser’s description. He wants to focus on his family’s safety, which, per the description, has been threatened since protests erupted after Taylor’s killing.
The detective is currently seeking $75,000 and, as of Wednesday morning, has raised over $9,000.
