Two policemen have been shot amid protests in the US over a decision not to charge any officers over the killing of Breonna Taylor.
Ms Taylor, 26, a black hospital worker, was shot multiple times as three officers raided her home on 13 March.
A grand jury in the city of Louisville indicted one of the officers with “wanton endangerment” for shots which hit a neighbour’s apartment.
The attorney general said the two other officers’ actions had been justified.
One of the officers had been hit by a shot fired by Ms Taylor’s boyfriend, who later told police he thought it was Ms Taylor’s ex-boyfriend who had broken into the apartment.
Cases of killings of unarmed black people by police have fuelled anger across the US and beyond, triggered especially by the death of George Floyd in police custody in Minneapolis in May.
Louisville Police Chief Robert Schroeder said the police officers shot on Wednesday did not have life-threatening injuries. A suspect was in custody, he added.
A state of emergency has been declared in Louisville and the National Guard have also been deployed.
