Corey Boykin Jr. was fatally shot by police after they received a call of an assault at an industrial park on Fern Valley Rd. Police released the footage shortly after the incident and it is extremely graphic.
“Officers from the sixth and seventh division responded and were here at the business for about an hour trying to understand exactly what was occurring to gain entry into the business where the incident was supposedly happening,” Chief Conrad said.
The officers initially left after they were unable to locate any disturbance, but then they got a call of an armed robbery at the same location with shots fired.
The officers responded again, and as officers surrounded the loading dock doorway, the suspect exited with his pistol in-hand.
Officer John Dillon and Officer Nick Ulery opened fire, shooting the suspect, Corry Boykin Jr., 24.
Officers dragged Boykin away from the doorway and provided first aid before he was transported to University Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
When the officers made entry into the building, they located a victim who was bound and injured from being pistol whipped.
“They were rescued from that location, they were taken to University Hospital by our officers. That victim was treated, and released and is now home resting safely,” Major Frank Hardison said.
In an effort to be transparent, Louisville Metro PD has released the bodycam video of the shooting.
“None of these videos offers a complete view of what occurred last night, please understand that body worn video is just one part of a complete and thorough investigation,” Chief Steve Conrad said.
Officer Dillon and Officer Ulery have been placed on admin leave while the shooting is being investigated.
LMPD’s Public Integrity Unit is handling the investigation.
