RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — A crowd is gathering at the Lee Monument on Monument Avenue in Richmond.

Taylor’s front door was breached by Louisville police officers as part of a drug raid on March 13, 2020. Her boyfriend fired his gun, as he described, out of fear for his and Taylor’s life.

One officer was struck, and he and two other officers fired over 30 bullets into the apartment, striking Taylor six times.
