The family of Breonna Taylor, a black woman shot dead in her home by police in Louisville, Kentucky, have reached a “several million dollar settlement” with the city, according to reports.
The settlement is expected to be accompanied by police reforms, including a requirement that commanders approve search warrants before they are put to a judge.
A civil lawsuit, filed in April by her mother, Tamika Palmer, alleged the police used flawed information when they obtained a “no-knock” warrant to enter her daughter’s apartment in March.
Ms Taylor, 26, was shot several times and police found no drugs at her home.
The suit accused three Louisville police officers of blindly firing into Ms Taylor’s apartment the night of the March raid, striking the medical worker several times. Ms Taylor’s boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, was in the apartment with her and fired a single shot that struck an officer in the leg.
