Kentucky’s attorney general reversed course and said he would release on Wednesday a recording of grand jury proceedings over the police shooting death of Breonna Taylor that resulted in none of the officers involved being charged with homicide.
Attorney General Daniel Cameron initially rejected calls to release the grand jury proceedings, saying those are meant to be kept secret. The outcome of the deliberations over the March shooting of the Black emergency medical technician raised questions over how Cameron, a Black Republican, guided the grand jurors in their decision-making.

“The grand jury is meant to be a secretive body. It’s apparent that the public interest in this case isn’t going to allow that to happen,” Cameron said in a statement late on Monday. “We will comply with the judge’s order to release the recording on Wednesday.”
The grand jury decided against charging either of the two officers whose bullets struck Taylor, but did indict a third officer with wanton endangerment for stray bullets that hit a neighboring apartment. Continue to Reuters.
