The EMT worker was killed by Louisville police officers in March as a result of a mistaken drug raid at her apartment. Authorities were serving a narcotics warrant but no drugs were found at her home.

Taylor was shot eight times while she was sleeping. Taylor’s death is one that has touched off months of global demonstrations over the death of Black people by police officers.

Since Taylor’s shooting, the City of Louisville has banned “no-knock” warrants.

Brett Hankison, one of the three officers involved in her death, is the only one to have been fired. However, none have been officially charged in her killing.
