(Louisville, KY) - The defense for the only officer charged in connection to the deadly raid on Breonna Taylor's apartment is resting its case. 

Former Louisville Detective Brett Hankison took the stand Wednesday in his wanton endangerment trial, saying he was trying to defend fellow officers when he fired through Taylor's apartment into a neighboring occupied unit.

Hankison fired from outside a sliding glass door after Taylor's boyfriend shot another officer as police tried to enter the apartment. 

Closing arguments are scheduled for Thursday morning.
