    Columbus, Ohio, shooting: Police officer shot and killed a Black teenage girl holding a knife

    The headline is misleading - she wasn't "holding a knife - she was attempting to stab two other girls.


    A Columbus, Ohio, police officer shot and killed a Black teenager Tuesday afternoon after she attempted to cut two females with a knife, according to officials and body camera footage shown to the media.

    The girl's mother, Paula Bryant, and the Franklin County Children's Services identified her as Ma'Khia Bryant. Although local law enforcement identified her as 15 years old at a news conference Tuesday, the FCCS gave the girl's age as 16.

    "Ma'Khia was a foster child, who was under the care of Franklin County Children Services," the FCCS said in a statement. "This was a tragic incident and FCCS is continuing its involvement with the family throughout this difficult time."

    Police received a call at 4:32 p.m. indicating "females were there trying to stab them and put their hands on them," Columbus Interim Police Chief Michael Woods said Tuesday night.

    When police arrived, the first officer on the scene approaches a group in the driveway of a home, according to that officer's bodycam footage.

    The video shows a teen quickly move toward another girl with what appears to be a knife, and the girl falls to the ground. The officer yells, "Hey, hey, hey, hey. Get down!" before she appears to lunge at a second girl with the knife, according to the video.

    The officer tells her to "Get Down! Get down! Get down! Get down!" and then fires four shots in the direction of the teenager.

    One officer attends to the shooting victim, who police are not identifying. Officers assessed the girl for injuries and summoned a medic, as is protocol, Woods said.

    "Ma'Khia had a motherly nature about her. She promoted peace. That is something that I want to always be remembered," Paula Bryant told TV station WBNS.

    Police did not have any information on whether the two other individuals were injured, Woods said.

    The officer will be taken off the street while an investigation by the Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCI) in the Ohio Attorney General's Office takes place, Woods said. The investigation then goes to the Franklin County Grand Jury and then back to the police department for an internal review, Woods said.

    "We know based on this footage, the officer took action to protect another young girl in our community," Columbus Mayor Andrew Ginther said at the news conference. "But a family is grieving tonight and this young 15-year-old girl will never be coming home."

    The shooting comes the same day former Minneapolis officer Derek Chauvin was found guilty in the murder of George Floyd.


    CNN's narrative, of course, is that the SAME DAY that the jury reached a verdict in the George Floyd case - another SIMILAR situation took place.

    It is OBVIOUSLY not similar ---
    • the police were called to the scene because girls were being attacked by another girl with a knife
    • the police were not arresting or interacting with the assailant themselves, but on behalf of another, presumably black, person (or two)
    • the police were actively attempting to protect the lives of the other two girls
    • the assailant is identified in the media as 15 years old, when she is actually 16 -- probably an attempt to maximize the sympathy factor

    The actual headline should have read "Police Officer saves two girls from knife-wielding assailant"

      And, if, as I suspect, they are black girls... "Police Officer saves two young black girls from knife-wielding assailant - is applauded by black community!"

        The officer shot the girl in the split second before she stabbed the other girl. Her arm with the knife was raised and ready to stab. He had no time to do anything but shoot the assailant. He did the right thing.

          Thanks - I kept seeing references to the body cam video, but couldn't find it!

          And, yes --- he SAVED A BLACK LIFE!!!! For this, the superwoke will blame the cop for killing a black "15 year old holding a knife"! Yet another LIE of the left.

          ETA: OK, not clear -- was the intended stabbing victim black or white?

            The girl in the pink was black.

                Here is a video of the press conference which showed the body cam - it goes through it in more detail including slow motion.

                  Yeah, she was doing more than merely holding a knife.

                    On a side note - it always bugged me that Columbus Police uniforms include WHITE shirts --- makes them a glaring target in the dark.

                            A chaotic scene with multiple people scuffling and attacking each other. The officer seemed surprisingly calm under the circumstances, just saying, "Hey, get down! Get down! Get down!" as he drew his weapon. He wasn't even yelling, just raised his voice. The girl dressed in black had a knife raised and was lunging towards the girl in pink when the officer opened fire. It's actually pretty impressive that he hit his intended target because the two girls were very close to each other.

                              Your narrative doesn't fit the headline!
