Cameron’s office issued this statement to WHAS11 News:

“Attorney General Cameron remains committed to an independent and thorough investigation into the death of Ms. Taylor. The investigation remains ongoing, and we currently await additional testing and analysis from federal partners, including a ballistics test from the FBI crime lab.”

According to attorneys for Breonna Taylor’s estate, more than twenty shots were fired into her apartment on March 13. Taylor was shot multiple times, attorneys say.

The investigation involves three officers who fired into the apartment that night killing Taylor. Sgt. Jon Mattingly, Detective Myles Cosgrove, and former officer Brett Hankison.

Hankison has been the only officer terminated from the police department. His termination letter states that he “blindly fired” 10 rounds from outside, through the patio door.
