On June 1, 2020, David McAtee, an African-American man, was fatally shot by the Kentucky National Guard in Louisville during protests over the deaths of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor. The Louisville Metro Police Department (LMPD) and National Guard were in the area to enforce a curfew. According to officials, the police and soldiers were fired upon by McAtee, and two Louisville officers and two National Guardsmen returned fire. McAtee was killed by a shot fired from a guardsman. The body cams of the police involved were deactivated during the shooting, in violation of department policy. Hours later, police chief Steve Conrad was fired by Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer.

A GoFundMe has been set up on behalf of the family of McAtte.
