Body camera footage from moments after Breonna Taylor shooting

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- This week, the city of Louisville released hundreds of hours of videos, transcripts, pictures and other reports from the Breonna Taylor case.

Police killed Taylor, a 26-year old hospital technician, on March 13 during a raid at her apartment near Pleasure Ridge Park. 

The newly released evidence includes body camera footage and interviews with the Louisville Metro Police Department's SWAT team. 

The police department maintains there is no body camera video of the shooting itself — only the moments afterward — and SWAT officers had the first cameras inside Taylor's apartment.

The body camera footage provides more context on why Lt. Dale Massey, the SWAT commander, described the raid as "an egregious act." 

The video below shows what SWAT saw that night. 

No officers were charged for Taylor's death. Attorney General Daniel Cameron found Detective Myles Cosgrove and Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly justified in their use of force, saying they fired after Taylor's boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, shot Mattingly.

Walker said he shot once as a warning, not knowing it was police busting down the door to Taylor's apartment at 1 a.m. The officers returned a hail of bullets, hitting Taylor six times, according to Cameron. 

A search warrant said narcotics officers believed Taylor could have been holding drugs or thousands in drug money for her ex-boyfriend, Jamarcus Glover.

Taylor had no criminal history, and officials later said they found nothing illegal in her home. 

Taylor's death stirred outrage and ongoing protests in Louisville and throughout the country. The city of Louisville settled a wrongful death lawsuit with Taylor's family for $12 million.
