A Settlement Has Been Made In The Breonna Taylor Case


The city of Louisville, Kentucky, is paying $12 million to the family of Breonna Taylor.

Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer announced the settlement in a joint press conference with the Taylor family's attorneys.

Taylor's family sued the city after Louisville Metro Police officers broke down the door to Taylor's apartment and fatally shot her while executing a, "no-knock" warrant.

None of the three officers involved in the flawed raid has been charged with a crime. Brett Hankinson, was fired for "wantonly and blindly" firing 10 rounds into her apartment.

The fatal police shooting has led to the Louisville city council passing "Breonna's Law," which banned no-knock search warrants.

Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron, the first Black person to hold the post was made a special prosecutor in the case, and the FBI has opened an investigation as well.

A grand jury has been empaneled to investigate the shooting, and Cameron is expected to announce a charging decision soon.
