The Louisville Metro Police (LMPD) has apologized to CNN affiliate reporter WAVE Kaitlin, who was immediately shot by an officer with a pepper ball launcher during a live broadcast on Friday night.
LMPD special advisor Jessie Halladay said she had reviewed the video and the incident was not something that should have happened if Rust was chosen as a reporter.
According to Halladay, the authorities could not confirm that the officer seen in the video was an LMPD officer, but said he could be a member of the special response team.
Halladay said the department would review the video once the protest ended and investigate if disciplinary action was needed.
The LMPD has no intention of targeting the media covering the incident, Halladay added.
