Protests were underway in Louisville, Ky., for a third night after a grand jury did not bring charges against Louisville police for the killing of Breonna Taylor during a drug raid gone wrong, with prosecutors saying the two officers that fired their weapons that hit the Black woman were justified in using force to protect themselves.

The charges brought by the grand jury were three counts of wanton endangerment against fired Officer Brett Hankison for shooting into Taylor's neighbours' homes during the raid on the night of March 13. The FBI is still investigating potential violations of federal law in the case.

Earlier on Friday, the family of Taylor and their lawyer demanded the release of all body camera footage, police files and transcripts of the grand jury hearings.

Along with the killing of George Floyd in Minnesota, Taylor's case became a major touchstone for the nationwide protests that have gripped the U.S. since May — drawing attention to entrenched systemic racism and demands for police reform.
