Grand Jury Will Finally Get To Decide If Police Officers Who Killed Breonna Taylor Should Be Charged

The findings in the case of Breonna Taylor, the 26-year-old Black woman who was shot and killed in her home by Louisville, Ky., police in March, are being presented to a grand jury by Kentucky Attorney General David Cameron (R), according to multiple reports.

The Hill reports:

WKYT reported that the presentation was expected to last two days and then the grand jury will be given time to deliberate.

The location of the grand jury is unknown and another local station, WAVE, reported that an announcement regarding the case wouldn’t come until next week.

Cameron’s office has been investigating Taylor’s death at the hands at three officers from the Louisville Metropolitan Police Department.

On March 13, Officers Jonathan Mattingly, Brett Hankison and Myles Cosgrove — all in plainclothes — entered Taylor’s apartment while executing a no-knock search warrant. Taylor and her boyfriend Kenneth Walker were asleep at the time.

Walker, who has said he thought the officers were intruders, fired at them. The trio returned the fire, hitting Taylor numerous times and killing her.
