Kenneth Walker, boyfriend of Breonna Taylor, the 26-year-old Black EMT who was fatally shot by Louisville, Ky., police in her own home earlier this year, said he was told by a police officer moments after her death that it was “unfortunate” he hadn’t been hit as well.

Walker opened up about the events that took place the March night of the botched police raid at his girlfriend’s apartment in an interview with CBS News on Wednesday.

“To the world, she’s just a hashtag, a picture and all of that,” Walker began. "But to me, it was much more. More than a girlfriend too, I think that’s what I want the world to know the most — my best friend.” “The most important person to me on Earth, and they took her,” he said.
