The FBI said it had made "significant progress" in its investigation of the death a year ago of Breonna Taylor, a young Black woman mistakenly shot and killed by police in Louisville, Kentucky during a botched raid of her apartment.
Taylor, a 26-year-old emergency room aide, was shot six times after police forced their way into her apartment using a no-knock search warrant on March 13.
