The family of Breonna Taylor has received a settlement from Louisville, Kentucky, of $12 million.
Emergency Medical Technician, 26-year-old Breonna Taylor was killed on March 13 by LMPD officers when they executed a late-night “no-knock” warrant.
According to CNN, their review of the shooting found that police believed Taylor was home alone when she was in fact accompanied by her boyfriend, who was legally armed. That miscalculation, along with the decision to press forward with a high-risk, forced-entry raid under questionable circumstances, contributed to the deadly outcome.
The three officers involved in the killing of Taylor have not been charged. An officer-involved, Brett Hankinson, was fired in late June for “wantonly and blindly” firing ten rounds in Taylor’s apartment, then-interim Louisville Police Chief Robert Schroeder said.
A grand jury has been selected to investigate the shooting, though an announcement has not been made about their decision to charge in the case.
Attorney General Daniel Cameron did not release a specific timeline on the decision as of yet.
