CBS News' Gayle King asked the two jurors what they "thought of the police behavior and actions" on March 13, according to a part of the interview released Tuesday.

Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron addresses the media in Frankfort, Ky., on Sept. 23 following the return of a grand jury investigation into the death of Breonna Taylor.

Cameron, who in court had opposed allowing grand jurors to speak about the proceedings, said he would not appeal the decision.

"The grand jury didn't agree that certain actions were justified, nor did it decide the indictment should be the only charges in the Breonna Taylor case.". »
