Rhynes, who has no violent criminal history prior to Friday's shootings, was wearing a shirt that said "#Freedom," Burbrink said Monday, and included an image of the faces of Muhammad Ali and Colin Kaepernick. The detective said Breonna Taylor, the 26-year-old Black woman shot and killed by LMPD officers this year in a case that has sparked more than 100 days of protests in the city, was not referenced on the shirt.
Rhynes is Black, as was Hudson, while Head and Smallwood were white.
Police have not yet established a motive for the shooting, Burbrink said.
Rhynes may have been asked to leave one or more other bars in Louisville before Friday's homicides, the LMPD lieutenant said, but he is not believed to have had any contact with the three victims before he is alleged to have opened fire.
So if it were a white guy wearing a Q shirt, you wouldn't be screaming that he's right wing?
