A source told CNN Tuesday that the deal was a multi-million dollar deal.
Taylor’s family sued the city after Louisville subway police broke the door to their apartment and fatally shot Taylor while executing a no-knock nighttime arrest warrant in a drug investigation on March 13.
The Mayor of Louisville is expected to announce the settlement later Tuesday in a joint press conference with attorneys for the Taylor family.
Attorney Sam Aguilar confirmed to CNN that an agreement had been reached on the case.
“The city’s response on this case has been delayed and frustrating, but the fact that they were ready to sit down and talk about major reforms was a step in the right direction and hopefully a turning point,”
; he said.
A CNN review of the shooting revealed that police believed Taylor was home alone when she was actually accompanied by her boyfriend, who was legally armed. This misjudgment, together with the decision to push ahead with a high-risk forced-entry attack under questionable circumstances, contributed to the fatal outcome.
None of the three officers involved in the flawed raid were charged with a crime. An officer, Brett Hankinson, was fired in late June for “willfully and blindly” firing 10 rounds into her home, wrote Louisville’s then interim police chief Robert Schroeder.
Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron, the first black to hold office and a rising Republican star, was appointed a special attorney earlier this year, and the FBI has also opened an investigation. The officers did not wear body cameras, police said.
A grand jury was hired to investigate the shooting, although no announcement was made regarding the proceedings.
Cameron is expected to announce a fee ruling soon despite refusing to give a specific schedule.
“My office is constantly being asked for a schedule for the investigation into Ms. Breonna Taylor’s death. An investigation, if properly conducted, cannot follow a timeline,” Cameron tweeted last week.
