We’ve all heard the story by now:
The shooting death of Breonna Taylor, 26, by police during a raid at her home in Louisville, Kentucky, has sparked outrage around the country and a demand for answers.
On Thursday, the city's mayor and police chief asked the U.S. Justice Department and the FBI to review the police department's internal investigation into the shooting. The Kentucky attorney general Daniel Cameron also announced that he was asked to serve as a special prosecutor.
Breonna Taylor and her boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, were asleep in their apartment when just before 1 a.m. on March 13 three plainclothes officers with the Louisville Metro Police Department arrived to execute a search warrant in a drug case.
