While all the madness in the aftermath of the Derek Chauvin trial verdict was going on, there was a reported police-involved shooting over in Columbus, Ohio last night.
Via multiple sources on social media, 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant was shot and killed by a police officer, just minutes after the Chauvin verdict was read. However, it turns out she was attempting to stab another girl with a knife in her hand.
As you can see in the video below, bodycam footage has captured the incident itself with Bryant pulling a knife on the girl in the pink clothes wanting to stab her.
Also in the video shows a man kicking another girl in the head while she was on the ground, just one second before the first shot was made.
Apparently according to her mother via YouTuber Paul Joseph Watson, Ma’Khia was known for being a ‘peaceful, loving girl’ and as someone who is a ‘motherly figure who promoted peace.’
The unnamed officer has been taken off patrolling currently as the Ohio Bureau of Investigation is looking into the shooting.
