The EMT who took a shot police officer to the hospital in the Breonna Taylor case did not know Taylor had been shot as well, new documents tell.

That’s according to an interview EMT William Smith gave to an investigator for the Attorney General’s Office, WHAS-TV reports.

“I didn’t hear any mention of someone else needing help or be injured until we got to the hospital with John,” Smith said, talking about Officer John Mattingly.

The newly released interview was recorded in late June with investigators.

“I want justice,” Smith said. “I feel like I would have rather had a chance to save Breonna.”

Lonita Baker, the attorney for Breonna Taylor’s family, said the family will never know if the outcome would have been different for Taylor.

“I feel for the workers that night, the EMS workers,” Barker said. “They are clearly upset about it and torn that they did not receive that information.”
