ATLANTA — Protests happened in Atlanta, following the announcement in Louisville, Ky. that one officer would be charged in the Breonna Taylor case, for shooting into a neighboring apartment.
Activists expressed disbelief after the announcement that there would be no charges for any officers directly related to Taylor's death.
The 26-year-old was shot and killed in her home by Louisville Metro Police Department officers in March, as the officers were executing a warrant at Taylor's apartment as part of a drug investigation.
Taylor did not have a criminal background. Attorneys said no drugs and no cash were found in her apartment the night of her death. Her family filed a lawsuit against the officers involved in the shooting on April 27. On September 15, the city of Louisville announced a $12 million settlement with Taylor's family -- the largest sum paid by the city for a police misconduct case.
