The City of Louisville will pay several million dollars to the family of Breonna Taylor in a Wrongful Death Lawsuit.

The 26-year-old EMT was shot by Louisville Metro Police during a No-Knock raid on her apartment in March of 2020.

This will be the largest police misconduct payment the city has ever paid in a lawsuit.

The department will also implement changes, including a system to identify officers with red flags, as well as having a commanding officer to review and approve all search warrants.

A total of three officers involved in the botched raid have not been charged, as the case is being reviewed by Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron.
