Kenneth Walker recently learned the charges against him were dismissed after the incident that took Taylor’s life. He thanked the crowd for their support Saturday.
“I just want to say that I appreciate all the love and support for Breonna and for me everywhere,” said Walker. “Especially right here, but all across the world.”
During the raid, Walker said he fired in self-defense, adding he thought someone was trying to break into his house.MORE NEWS: Lakers To Welcome Back Fans At Staples Center Thursday
