It has been nearly three months since Breonna Taylor was killed by police officers in her apartment.

The Louisville Metro Police Department has released the incident report from the night Breonna Taylor was killed in her apartment.

In a report from the Louisville Courier Journal via USA Today, the four-page report has some inconsistencies surrounding the incident, including listing her injuries as “none” even though she was shot at least eight times. The report also said that officers didn’t use “forced entry” even though officers used a battering ram to knock in Taylor’s apartment door.

The department has since released a statement on the incident report, and blamed the errors on it on a reporting program creating a paper file.

“Inaccuracies in the report are unacceptable to us, and we are taking immediate steps to correct the report and to ensure the accuracy of incident reports going forward,” the statement said.

The department has faced criticism from Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer, as well as people on social media.

“Full stop. It’s issues like this that erode public confidence in LMPD’s ability to do its job, and that’s why I’ve ordered an external top-to-bottom review of the department,” he said in a statement Wednesday night. “I am sorry for the additional pain to the Taylor family and our community.”

It has been nearly three months since Breonna Taylor was killed by police officers in her apartment. No charges have been filed yet against the three officers — Sgt. Jon Mattingly; Myles Cosgrove; and Brett Hankison — involved in her death.
