Breonna Taylor’s boyfriend Kenneth Walker has reached a financial settlement of $2m with officials of the City of Louisville, according to his lawyer.
Taylor, 26, was shot dead by plainclothes officers during a police raid at her own home in Louisville, Kentucky, on 13 March 2020 after they executed a search warrant as part of a narcotics investigation.
Mr Walker was with her on that day and had fired a single shot from a handgun, striking an officer in the leg as he believed the police to be intruders.
The officers from the Louisville Metro Police Department opened fire, killing Taylor.
The city agreed to pay $2M to settle lawsuits filed by Mr Walker, said his attorney Steve Romines.
