Taylor, 26, was fatally shot when police officers served a search warrant at her home in March.
Sam Aguiar, one of the family’s lawyers, confirmed via email that a settlement has been reached.
“The city’s response in this case has been delayed and it’s been frustrating, but the fact that they’ve been willing to sit down and talk significant reform was a step in the right direction and hopefully a turning point,” he added to CNN.
Details of the settlement haven’t been confirmed. Reports indicate it will be one of the largest settlements in police shooting cases in the city’s history.
They will be gathering “to address a significant update in the Breonna Taylor case,” according to a press release.
Fischer said during a radio interview early Tuesday that he couldn’t comment on the reported settlement.
“I don’t have anything to announce on that at this time,” he said.
Attorney’s for Taylor’s family filed a wrongful death lawsuit earlier this year, arguing police officers “had no probable cause or other legal basis to enter and search” her home.
Gunfire was exchanged between the officers and Taylor’s boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, who was charged with attempted murder. The charge was later dropped.
Taylor’s case is being examined by federal, state, and local investigators.
The top FBI agent in the city told activists in July that the investigation was the bureau’s “top priority” but stressed the need to take ample time to handle such a “complex” probe.
Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron’s office is conducting a separate investigation, as is the Louisville City Council into Fischer’s handling of the case.
The three officers involved in the case were placed on administrative reassignment.
One of them, Brett Hankison, was later fired.
Interim Police Chief Robert Schroeder said the officer “displayed an extreme indifference to the value of human life when you wantonly and blindly fired ten (10) rounds into the apartment of Breonna Taylor.”
Activists want the other two officers fired and all three charged.

The U.S. Department of Commerce and Russia’s state atomic agency have initialed a draft amendment extending a 1992 agreement that will, if finalized, slash America’s reliance on Russian uranium. The Commerce Department is hoping to seal the deal by Oct. 5 at the latest, the agency said in a press release, noting that the amendment would extend the Agreement Suspending the Antidumping Investigation on Uranium from the Russian Federation to 2040 and so “reduce U.S. reliance on uranium from Russia” for the next 20 years. Under the 1992 agreement, which saw a series of amendments added over the years, with the latest in 2008, the amount of Russian uranium entering the American market is restricted by quotas. The most recently agreed upon limits are due to lapse this year. “This draft agreement…
