The FBI has opened an investigation into the shooting death of Kentucky EMT Breonna Taylor
Robert Brown, special agent in charge for the FBI Louisville, issued a statement Thursday that said in part, "The FBI will collect all available facts and evidence and will ensure that the investigation is conducted in a fair, thorough and impartial manner."
As this is an ongoing investigation, Brown said they aren't able to comment further.
The news follows the Louisville Metro Police Department announcing that it would require all sworn officers to wear body cameras and change how the department carries out search warrants. They're the first steps toward improving police accountability, Mayor Greg Fischer said at a news conference, in which he repeatedly referred to Taylor's death as a "tragedy."
In March, Taylor was shot at least eight times when three officers forcibly entered her apartment to serve a search warrant in a narcotics investigation. The department said the men announced themselves and returned gunfire when Taylor's boyfriend fired at them.
But in a wrongful death lawsuit, Taylor's mother says the officers didn't knock at all and should have called off their search because the suspect they sought had already been arrested.
Officers didn't find drugs in her apartment when they entered, Taylor's mother said in the lawsuit.
Going forward, "no-knock warrants," which allow police to enter a residence without announcing themselves or their purpose, must be signed off on by a judge and the police chief or his designee before police can serve them, Fischer said at a news conference Monday. Previously, the warrant required only a judge's sign-off.
