Taylor's mother initially called police to help defuse a domestic situation, as Taylor had been drinking. An officer fired and killed Taylor after the 23-year-old refused to put down a knife he had pointed at the officer. The Clark County District Attorney found that the officer's use of force was justified, though "regrettable."
