Grand Jury Decision In Breonna Taylor Case To Be Announced This Afternoon

The Jefferson County grand jury will present its report on the Breonna Taylor case to Jefferson Circuit Judge Annie O’Connell at 1:15 p.m. ET, according to multiple reports.

Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron will then discuss the decision in the death of the 26-year-old EMT in a press conference at the Kentucky History Center and Museum in Frankfort at 1:30 p.m. ET.

Earlier this month, Cameron presented his investigation findings surrounding the fatal police shooting of Taylor, a 26-year-old EMT who was killed after police broke down the door to her apartment while executing a "no-knock" warrant on March 13, to a grand jury.

Taylor was unarmed at the time of her death and the plainclothes police officers who fatally shot her eight timers were also at the wrong house as the man they were actually looking for had already been arrested earlier that day.

Ahead of Wednesday's scheduled announcement, the Louisville Metro Police Department announced that six officers are under internal investigation for their actions involving Taylor's death. The department's Professional Standards Unit has reportedly begun their probe with Cosgrove and Mattingly, the officers who fired the shots into Taylor's apartment on March 13. The unit will also investigate Det. Joshua Jaynes, the officer who sought the search warrant for Taylor's residence. Det. Tony James, Det. Michael Campbell and Det. Michael Nobles.
