The city of Louisville, Kentucky, has settled a wrongful death lawsuit filed by the family of Breonna Taylor, the 26-year-old Black EMT killed by white police six months ago.
18 Karat Reggae has learned that the agreement was a multi-million dollar settlement.
Taylor’s family sued the city after Louisville Metro Police officers broke down the door to her apartment and fatally shot Taylor while executing a late-night, “no-knock” warrant in a narcotics investigation on March 13.
No narcotics was found at the home and the person they were looking for was not even at the house nor did that person lived at the house.
Six months after the incident and none of the officers has been charged with a crime and only one was fired.
The mayor of Louisville is expected to announce the settlement later Tuesday in a joint press conference with the Taylor family attorneys.
Attorney Sam Aguilar confirmed to 18 Karat Reggae there is a settlement in the case.
“The city’s response in this case has been delayed and it’s been frustrating, but the fact that they’ve been willing to sit down and talk significant reform was a step in the right direction and hopefully a turning point,” he said.
Many whites, mostly supporters of Donald Trump have justified Taylor’s brutal murder by saying sosme of her friends are drug dealers.
