Ken­tucky’s at­tor­ney gen­eral re­versed course and said he would re­lease on Wednes­day a record­ing of grand jury pro­ceed­ings over the po­lice shoot­ing death of Bre­onna Tay­lor that re­sulted in none of the of­fi­cers in­volved be­ing charged with homi­cide.

At­tor­ney Gen­eral Daniel Cameron ini­tially re­jected calls to re­lease the pro­ceed­ings, say­ing those are meant to be kept se­cret. The out­come of the de­lib­er­a­tions over the March shoot­ing of the Black EMT raised ques­tions over how Cameron guided the grand ju­rors in their de­ci­sion-mak­ing.

The grand jury de­cided against charg­ing ei­ther of the two of­fi­cers whose bul­lets struck Tay­lor, but did in­dict a third of­fi­cer with wan­ton en­dan­ger­ment for stray bul­lets that hit a neigh­bour­ing apart­ment.
