Civil rights attorney Benjamin Crump, who is representing Taylor’s family, has called a news conference for 2 p.m. ET at the Louisville mayor’s office to announce the “significant update in the Breonna Taylor case.”
No charges have been filed against the officers involved. Kentucky’s Attorney General Daniel Cameron released a statement this week saying the investigation was still ongoing.
