And sergeant Jonathan Mattingly who was wounded during the incident speaking out for the first time telling "Gma's" Michael Strahan in this exclusive interview that breonna's death was not, quote, a race thing and also this -- Do you believe if you had body cameras, this wouldn't have happened? The incident would have still happened, but it would have been shown on camera what happened. This wouldn't have been an issue. This wouldn't be a case. You would never hear about it. Reporter: Riot police and Nigerian soldiers firing on hundreds of protesters demonstrating against police brutality in Lagos. At least a dozen people there while more protests are planned today despite a curfew. Now stars like Beyonce and Rihanna calling for an end to that violence.
