A statue of Breonna Taylor, an African-American woman who was shot dead by police during a raid on her home in March, has been smashed in California.

 

It happened two weeks after the bust was erected in the city of Oakland. Police have launched an investigation.

 

Sculptor Leo Carson called the destruction an act of "racist aggression". He said he would rebuild the piece in bronze.

 

Ms Taylor's death spurred protests against racism and police brutality.

 

The ceramic bust in Oakland depicted her smiling, with a message on its base that reads: "Say her name: Breonna Taylor."

 

It was found smashed on Saturday.

 

The Oakland police department said late on Monday that it was investigating what appeared to be an act of vandalism, but had not yet identified any suspects or motive.
