At least two federal buildings in Louisville, Ky., will be closed to the public this week, as some expect an announcement on whether the state will bring criminal charges against the three officers involved in the March shooting death of Breonna Taylor during a police raid.

"I can't foretell the future, but we're definitely not going to come in and be all kitted up in riot gear and propping up fences and shooting pepper balls in the air," Rob Sperling, a spokesman for the Federal Protective Service, said, referencing scenarios seen in Portland, Ore., where a few demonstrators launched Molotov cocktails and projectiles at federal officers. "It's to ensure the safety and security of federal property and personnel. That's really it."
