Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron met with Breonna Taylor's family for the first time on Wednesday, more than 150 days after Louisville Police killed her in her home.

Cameron's office said in a statement he was "grateful" to hold the meeting, which included Taylor's mother, Tamika Palmer, sister, aunt, family attorneys and a local activist.

"The meeting provided an opportunity for Attorney General Cameron to personally express his condolences to the family," the office said. "The investigation remains ongoing, and our office of Special Prosecutions continues to review all the facts in the case to determine the truth."

Taylor, a 26-year-old EMT, was shot and killed by Louisville Police in her apartment during a flawed forced-entry raid in the early morning hours of March 13. None of the officers involved has been charged with a crime.

Lonita Baker, an attorney for the family, said in a press conference Thursday that Cameron told them he hadn't met with the family earlier because he didn't want it to interfere with the investigation. Cameron told them that investigators were waiting on a ballistics report from the FBI as well as planned interviews and re-interviews with witnesses, according to Baker.

"He did not give a timeline, however it is our position that we're not going to wait forever," she said. "We do want this resolved quickly and accurately so that Ms. Palmer and the family can get some answers as it relates to the murder of Breonna Taylor."

Ben Crump, a civil rights attorney who represents Taylor's family as well as George Floyd's family, said he was hopeful charges would be filed against the officers before 200 days from her killing.

"We do expect charges to be filed sooner rather than later for those responsible for the death and the execution of Breonna Taylor," he said.
