An autopsy obtained by ABC news revealed she died of multiple gunshot wounds. A grand jury charging one of the three officers involved for allegedly endangering neighbors when he opened fire, but not with Taylor's death.

Reporter: David, at this point it does not appear the public will get the see those transcripts any time soon. The attorney general says because they are related to the ongoing federal investigation he won't be releasing them. Alex Perez on this again tonight. Alex, thank you.
