    Federal officials on Thursday charged four current and former police officers in Louisville, Ky., who were involved in a fatal raid on the apartment of Breonna Taylor, accusing them of several crimes, including lying to obtain a warrant that was used to search her home.

    Neither of the officers who shot and killed Ms. Taylor have ever been charged, nor are they named in the new indictments.

    The charges instead name three officers who were part of an investigative unit that obtained the search warrant for the raid, along with a fourth officer who was later fired from the department because, officials said, he had fired blindly into Ms. Taylor’s apartment and struck a neighboring apartment.
