Grand Jury Decision In Breonna Taylor Shooting Death

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — On the one-year anniversary of Breonna Taylor’s death, the slain Black woman’s family continued their call for justice as hundreds of demonstrators gathered in downtown Louisville. Members of Taylor’s family spoke Saturday from a stage set up in Jefferson Square Park, which became an impromptu hub for protesters during months of demonstrations last summer.

Flanked by two hand-painted murals of Taylor, other activists repeated calls to charge the police officers who killed the Black woman during a raid into her apartment. A grand jury indicted one officer on wanton endangerment charges in September for shooting into a neighbor’s apartment, but no officers have been charged in connection with Taylor’s death.
