That was my thought exactly, you can get Wanton Endangerment for merely pointing a gun at someone. Some additional things about this case that really bother me: The cops were trying to serve a search warrant for drugs on several residences, pretty routine work. Why exactly did this call for a no-knock warrant breaking down the door after midnight in an apartment complex? Wouldn't this put a whole lot of people in danger? Wouldn't it be safer to do the raid in the daytime? Taylor's boyfriend Kenneth Walker fired at the cops, who then returned fire. However, their bullets struck Taylor who was standing outside the apartment in the hallway and did not have a weapon. Detective Hankinson, (who is charged with wanton endangerment) fired at least 10 times. Walker was the person in the apartment who fired at the cops, so if Hankinson was shooting at Walker then how did Walker emerge unscathed but someone standing outside got killed?
