City to pay Breonna Taylor family $12m settlement
Officials in Louisville, Kentucky have agreed to pay $12m (£9.3m) to the family of Breonna Taylor, a black woman who was killed in her home by police.
Taylor was 26 when she was shot at least five times and killed on 13 March during a mistaken drugs raid, reports BBC.
Her name has featured prominently in anti-racism protests in recent months.
Lonita Baker, a lawyer for Taylor's family, called the settlement just one "layer" in the effort to seek justice, and praised new police reforms.
"Justice for Breonna is multi-layered," said Ms Baker at a press conference on Tuesday alongside Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer.
She called the agreement "tremendous, but only a portion" of what the family hopes for, including the arrest of the officers involved in her death.
"Today what we did here was to do what we could do to bring a little bit of police reform and it's just a start," continued Ms Baker.
"But we finished the first mile in the marathon and we've got a lot more miles to go to until we achieve and cross that finish line."
The settlement includes a series of police reforms in the city, including a requirement that all search warrants be approved by a senior officer and giving a housing credit to officers who move to low-income neighbourhoods they patrol in the city.
In a short statement, Taylor's mother Tamika Palmer called for criminal charges against the officers and asked people to continue to say her daughter's name publicly in advocacy for police reforms.
