The Kentucky Attorney General is reportedly presenting the case of Breonna Taylor — an EMT who police allegedly shot eight times in March — to a grand jury.
Multiple sources told WAVE that the case is being laid out at an undisclosed location. Attorney General Daniel Cameron’s office is not expected to make an announcement regarding the matter until next week, a source reportedly said.
Louisville narcotics officers fatally shot Taylor, 26, while executing a search warrant at her home. Reports indicated that Taylor was sleeping when she was shot.
Louisville Metro police claimed they announced themselves and returned gunfire to Taylor’s boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, 27. Walker claimed he fired a single round, as he believed the home was being broken into.
Walker was initially charged with the attempted murder of a police officer and first-degree assault, but prosecutors dropped the charges due to a lack of evidence.
In late June, Louisville Metro police Interim Chief Robert Schroeder fired officer Brett Hankison, 44, in connection with the deadly raid. Schroeder said Hankinson “blindly” fired 10 rounds into Taylor’s apartment and the unit next door. Hankinson appealed his termination days later.
