Grand jury is formed to hear case in Breonna Taylor killing: Report

A grand jury has formed to hear the case in the death of Breonna Taylor, the Black emergency medical technician who was fatally shot by the police inside her Louisville, Ky., apartment, CNN reported on Wednesday, citing unnamed sources.

No officers involved in Taylor’s death last winter have been criminally charged, and the killing of the 26-year-old has prompted weeks of protests in Kentucky’s largest city.

The grand jury was impaneled this week, a source told CNN.

Taylor was shot five times shortly after midnight on March 13 by cops executing a search warrant. The officers busted into the apartment after Taylor’s boyfriend fired a warning shot.

One officer involved in the incident has been fired.

The office of Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron is investigating Taylor’s death. The 34-year-old Republican prosecutor said in a statement on Wednesday that an update will be released when the investigation “concludes and a decision is made.”

“The news will come from our office and not unnamed sources,” Cameron said in the statement. “Until that time, the investigation remains ongoing.”
