Trump says he is 'praying' for two Louisville cops shot during clashes between BLM mob and police after Breonna Taylor decision - as a suspect is taken into custody and National Guard enforce curfew

Two Louisville cops have been shot and one suspect is in custody amid violent clashes between police and protesters sparked by a Kentucky grand jury's decision to charge only one officer involved in the shooting death of Breonna Taylor.

Interim Police Chief Robert Schroeder said the shooting took place at Brook Street and Broadway about 8.30pm Wednesday. Both of the officers, who have not identified, were rushed to University of Louisville Hospital. One of the officers is in stable condition, and the other is undergoing surgery, also in a stable condition.

'I am very concerned for the safety of our officers,' he told a press conference just after 10pm. 'Obviously we've had two officers shot tonight. That is very serious and a dangerous condition. I think the safety of our officers and the community we serve are of utmost importance.'
