  1. Officers announced themselves, says attorney general

    Mr Cameron says that the officers had not actually served a "no-knock" warrant.

    The Attorney General adds that the officers' statements that they had announced themselves "are corroborated by an independent witness".

    "In other words, the warrant was not served as a no-knock warrant."

    According to an arrest report, the narcotics officers had been granted a no-knock warrant, which allowed them to enter the premises without announcing themselves.

    Ms Taylor's family says the officers did not declare their presence, making Ms Taylor's boyfriend think that intruders had burst into her apartment.

    Police say they actually did announce themselves, and one neighbour told local media she heard them shout "police" before entering her home.

    Mr Cameron says he's forming a task force on search warrants in the wake of this case.

  2. Officer who fired fatal shot not charged

    Investigators determined that detective Myles Cosgrove fired the fatal shot - but he is not the officer charged today.

    Brett Hankison, who faces the wanton endangerment charges, had blindly fired 10 shots into the apartment. Mr Cameron says there's no conclusive evidence if any of his shots hit Ms Taylor, but his shots did hit the neighbouring apartment.

    Mr Cameron says the shots fired by the other two, Officers Maddingly and Cosgrove, were "justified to protect themselves and the justification bars us from pursuing criminal charges in Ms Breonna Taylor's death".

  3. 'Quest for truth, not revenge'

    "In our system, criminal justice is not the quest for revenge it's the quest for truth," says Mr Cameron. He calls for healing.

    Now the attorney general is taking questions.

  4. Taylor would have died in seconds

    "Everyday this family wakes up to the realisation that the person they loved is no longer with them," Attorney General Cameron says.

    "There is nothing I can offer them today to take away the grief and heartache as a result of losing a child, a niece a sister, and a friend."

    He goes on to say that ballistics reports found six bullets struck Ms Taylor. Only one was fatal.

    Medical evidence showed that she would have "died from the shot within a few seconds to two minutes".

  5. Protesters crying in the streets

    Protesters gathering in downtown Louisville around a memorial site for Breonna Taylor are weeping in the streets and telling reporters that the three officers "got away" with her death.

    Some have stopped to listen to Attorney General Daniel Cameron's press conference, but other have begun marching around Louisville and chanting Ms Taylor's name.

    Roadblocks have been set up downtown and National Guard units are on standby to deploy in the event of violent unrest.

    The presence of National Guard troops may further inflame the protesters, who note that a popular black BBQ restaurant owner was shot to death by troops during a Black Lives Matter protest in June.

  6. What is wanton endangerment?

    Kentucky law says someone is guilty of wanton endangerment if they commit an act that shows “an extreme indifference to the value of human life”.

    Brett Hankison has been charged with three counts of wanton endangerment - class D felony that can come with a five-year sentence for each count.

    Hankinson was fired from the Louisville Metro Police force in June after investigators found he had "wantonly and blindly fired 10 rounds" into Breonna Taylor’s apartment, according to his termination letter.

    According to reporters in Kentucky, Mr Hankinson is not being charged for firing at Ms Taylor, but rather for putting her neighbours at risk.

  7. Kentucky attorney general speaking now

    Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron is speaking now, expanding on the decision to indict one of the three officers in the Breonna Taylor case.

    "There is no doubt that this is a gut-wrenching emotional case and the pain that many people are feeling is understandable."

  8. Welcome to our live coverage

    A grand jury has charged one police officer after an investigation into the fatal shooting of Breonna Taylor at her home in the US state of Kentucky.

    Ms Taylor, 26, was shot at least five times in a mistaken drugs raid in the city of Louisville on 13 March.

    Her death has become a rallying cry for anti-racism protesters, who have called for the three officers involved to be arrested and charged.

    One of the three - Brett Hankison - has been charged with three counts of "wanton endangerment".
