The ballistics report in the fatal shooting of Breonna Taylor is in, though it's not yet clear what the report reveals. Kentucky's attorney general told CBS' Face the Nation on Sunday that he has the "critical piece" of the investigation, but "it's not the end-all be-all." Daniel Cameron said he will be meeting with FBI agents this week to go over the new information from the report, and added that some witness-testimony interviews still need to be conducted. Beyond that, "I don't want to get into the specifics," he said. "It is an ongoing investigation, and I don’t want to compromise it in any way." But he promised his office is "leaving no stone unturned." The lawyer for Taylor's family was also on the show, and said he's frustrated that no criminal charges have been announced against the officers involved in the shooting.

"We’ve been told when they get the ballistics report, that’s what they needed to wrap up this investigation and finally give them answers that they so desperately want,” he said. "At this point, we are hoping that this conclusion will be sooner rather than later, because justice delayed is justice denied." But, per the New York Times, the president of the Louisville Metro Council on Sunday gave no indication the probe was nearing its end. Meanwhile, Jamarcus Glover, the ex-boyfriend of Taylor who was named on the warrant allowing police to enter her home, was arrested Thursday, WAVE3 reports. The convicted drug dealer faces more drug-related charges in multiple cases, WHSV reports. More on the charges here. (More Breonna Taylor stories.)
