Police Release Body Cam Footage Showing Makiyah Bryant Was About to Stab Another Girl When Shot

Written by Kyle Becker

A 16-year-old girl was shot and killed by police on Tuesday afternoon, reportedly about the same time as the ‘guilty’ verdict in the Derek Chauvin trial came in. The girl’s name is Makiyah Bryant, who was pronounced dead at 5:21 p.m.

Protesters appeared in Columbus, Ohio and carried out a strikingly well-organized march on behalf of Makiyah Bryant.

It turns out, as earlier reported, that Makiyah Bryant indeed had a knife. The Columbus, Ohio police released body cam footage that shows what happened. WATCH:

Furthermore, the footage shows that she was shot while wielding a knife against another girl.

Once again, this is a case where a crowd called for “mob justice” without knowing the facts. Below, members of the community shouted obscenities at the police officers on the scene.

The protesters were confrontational with police officers.

Video footage of the scene seems to corroborate that the victim was a 16-year-old girl. (Caution: Graphic language.)

Further on-the-scene video seems to corroborate the girl shot had a knife. (Caution: Graphic language.)

Once again, the facts of the shooting of Makiyah Bryant’s death don’t fit the left’s narrative. The truth doesn’t seem to matter to the left, anyway.

Update: This article was updated to reflect the age of Bryant as 16-years-old.
