“Karen is currently hospitalized in stable condition, grateful for the rapid response from volunteer medics on the scene as well as the ongoing outpouring of love and care for her,” the group wrote in a Facebook post.

Taylor, an emergency medical worker, was shot multiple times in March by white officers who entered her home during a narcotics investigation.
