Louisville’s Courier Journal reported that Johnson stands “accused of shooting two LMPD officers about 8:30 p.m” Wednesday night.
The arrest citation for Johnson said he “showed an extreme indifference to the value of human life.”
The two wounded officers were identified as Mjr. Aubrey Gregory and Robinson Desroches, neither of whom sustained life-threatening wounds.
