Two police officers were shot in Louisville, Ky., on Wednesday night as protesters flocked to the streets to rally against the death of Breonna Taylor, authorities said.

Shortly after a police news conference, reports emerged on social media that a third police officer may have been shot.

The two police victims confirmed by authorities were being treated at a hospital for non-life-threatening injuries, Interim Louisville Metro Police Department Chief Robert Schroeder said in a short news conference around 10 p.m. ET.

“One is alert and stable, the other officer is currently undergoing surgery and stable,” Schroeder said, adding that one suspect was in custody.

Schroeder said the shooting happened at the intersection of First and Broadway it was unclear whether the protests played a role in their shootings.

“I am very concerned about the safety of our officers,” he answered a reporter. “I think the safety of our officers and the community we serve is of utmost importance.”

The third officer was reportedly in critical condition, a reporter with WGCL-TV in Atlanta reported. The station reported that two civilians also were shot.

Demonstrators turned out in droves hours after a grand jury handed down charges against one of three officers involved in the March raid inside Taylor’s apartment — with none of the charges directly involving Taylor’s death.

The local branch of the FBI said on Twitter that its SWAT team responded to an officer shooting and was assisting in the investigation.

A grand jury earlier in the day indicted one of the three officers who took part in the botched drug operation in Taylor’s apartment, targeting a man who did not live there and who was already in custody.

The charges against former LMPD Officer Brett Hankison were for recklessly firing stray bullets that found their way into a neighboring family’s home. He was fired in June.

Civil rights attorney Ben Crump called the charges “outrageous and offensive to Breonna Taylor’s memory.”

“It’s yet another example of no accountability for the genocide of persons of color by white police officers,” he said in a joint statement with co-counsels Sam Aguiar and Lonita Baker. “With all we know about Breonna Taylor’s killing, how could a fair and just system result in today’s decision?”

Protesters shouted slogans like “No justice, no peace” and criticized the charges in connection with Taylor’s death.

Photographs taken during the protests show tense confrontations between protesters and police after dark.

In one, police brandish firearms and clear out an intersection near where the officer was shot. In others, fires burn on the sidewalk.

TownHall reporter Julio Rosas shared video to Twitter that he said showed people trying to set fire to the courthouse’s boarded up windows.

Demonstrators were marching in other cities around the country, too, including New York City, Chicago, Atlanta and Washington, D.C.
