Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Mediaite.com: “Body Cam Footage of Ma’Khia Bryant Shooting”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Police in Columbus, Ohio have released bodycam footage showing the moment when Ma’Khia Bryant was shot.

Bryant, a Black teenager, was shot on Tuesday while officers were responding to 911 calls about an attempted stabbing.

On Wednesday, police held a press conference where they released frantic audio from one of the calls, then they showed Officer Nicholas Reardon’s bodycam footage of Bryant getting shot in the altercation.

The shooting drew shock and horror from the onlookers, but as Reardon and fellow officers approached Bryant’s body, someone was heard pointing out that Bryant “had a knife. She just went at her.”

A knife was seen close to Bryant’s body in the video, and she reportedly died shortly after the encounter from her injuries. Police released bodycam video of the shooting earlier in the day, though they previously left out Bryant getting shot and the aftermath.
