Louisville announces $12M settlement in Breonna Taylor shooting

Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer announced a financial settlement Tuesday afternoon of $12 million with the family of Breonna Taylor, the 26-year-old Black woman fatally shot by police in her apartment six months ago.

The settlement was announced at a 2 p.m. press conference at Mayor Fischer's office, with Taylor's family and attorneys Ben Crump, Sam Aguiar and Lonita Baker.

In addition to the payment, the deal includes several policing reforms, including a requirement that commanders approve all search warrants before they go to a judge.
