The city of Louisville, Kentucky has reached a settlement with the family of Breonna Taylor, 26, after she was killed in her apartment by officers executing a drug warrant six months ago.
The local government is set to announce a “substantial” settlement with Taylor’s family, and Mayor Greg Fischer will announce more details at around 2 p.m. Tuesday, according to the Courier Journal. The exact amount of the settlement has not yet been released, but sources told the local outlet that it may be the city’s largest police payout to date.
The mid-day announcement will also include a host of law enforcement reforms, including a provision that police executives must approve search warrants before they can be approved by a judge, according to the Courier Journal.
