Taylor, a 26-year-old emergency medical technician, was shot to death by police in her home on March 13.

Police allegedly entered her apartment unannounced, serving a so-called no-knock warrant. When Taylor's boyfriend Kennet Walker opened fire on the police he said did not identify themselves, they fired back and killed Taylor. 

Taylor is among multiple Black Americans recently killed by police whose deaths have sparked nationwide protests and calls for action on police brutality and racial injustice.
