Kentucky AG Daniel Cameron Says FBI Ballistics Test in Breonna Taylor Case ‘Not Conclusive’ [VIDEO]


*Kentucky’s Attorney General says his office is now in possession of the FBI ballistics test in the Breonna Taylor case… but claims it’s not conclusive.

Daniel Cameron told The Courier Journal the ballistics test was leading to a delay in the investigation of Taylor’s killing by Louisville Metro Police.

“We’ve received the FBI ballistics report in the Breonna Taylor investigation,” Cameron tweeted. “There is still additional analysis that must take place, & our office does not plan to make an announcement this week. We continue to work diligently to follow the facts and complete the investigation.”

Cameron first announced the news of the ballistics report on the CBS news show “Face the Nation” — watch the clip above.

“As part of my time in Washington, D.C., I met with the Department of Justice and FBI,” he said on the show. “We’ve got a critical component here as it relates to a ballistics report.”

On March 13, Taylor, 26, was shot eight times while sleeping in her bed with her boyfriend Kenneth Walker when three plain clothes officers performed a no-knock arrest warrant at her Louisville apartment.’

A search warrant revealed cops believed her ex-boyfriend, Jamarcus Glover, was hiding drugs or money at Taylor’s home.

According to police, Glover and Taylor used to date years ago, and he used her address and phone number as his own in the run-up to her death.

At the time of the raid, Glover was already in police custody 10 miles away. No drugs or cash were found at Taylor’s home.

Glover was arrested again last week, one day after he reportedly told a Louisville paper that Taylor had no involvement in drug trafficking.

Meanwhile, since the officers were not wearing body cameras, and there is no video evidence of the shooting, Cameron said the ballistics report represents “a critical piece of this investigation,” but stressed, “It’s not the end all, be all.”

“There’s still some witness testimony and interviews that have to be conducted …,” he said. “We will be meeting with the FBI at the beginning of this upcoming week to have a painstaking review of that information. And that will help us in the analysis that needs to be undertaken before we can get to final steps.”
