The city of Louisville will pay several million dollars to the family of Breonna Taylor, a 26-year-old Black woman killed by police during a raid on her apartment, as part of a legal settlement with the family, the president of the Louisville Metro Council said.

The Wall Street Journal also reports that the settlement also requires the city to implement police reforms, including a mandate for supervisors to sign off on search warrants, said David James, president of the council, who said a city official briefed him on the settlement Tuesday. He said he wasn’t at liberty to disclose the size of the settlement amount.
