The grand jury proceedings released to the public do not contain prosecutors' recommendations about what, if any, charges the jury should file against the officers who conducted the drug raid that led to Breonna Taylor's fatal shooting.
In a news release Friday, Attorney General Daniel Cameron said neither the prosecutors' recommendations nor the jury's deliberations were recorded ``as they are not evidence.''
He said not recording them was ``customary.''
Officer thought the gun Breonna Taylor's boyfriend fired was an AR-15 rifle
The Kentucky officer indicted on minor charges in the Breonna Taylor case told a grand jury that he thought the gun Breonna Taylor's boyfriend fired when police first entered her apartment was an AR-15 rifle.
Police discovered later that the weapon was a 9 mm handgun. Officer Brett Hankison said in an interview heard by the jury that he saw ``intense fire'' flashing through the curtain and ``lighting up the room.''
He said he thought that even though he was wearing his protective vest ``there is no way we can challenge this guy with an assault rifle.''
