Autopsy Report Rules Police Shooting Of Ma’Khia Bryant As A Homicide

Autopsy Report Rules Police Shooting Of Ma Khia Bryant As A Homicide

Ma’Khia Bryant, a Black girl who was tragically shot by an Ohio police officer in April, had her autopsy report unsealed. The 16-year-old was shot four times in the back, lower torso, right shoulder, and right thigh, according to the Franklin County coroner’s office report. Her death was determined to be a homicide.

Officer Nicholas Reardon fatally shot Bryant on April 20, as REVOLT previously revealed. According to her aunt, following a physical argument with two ladies at her foster home, the girl called the police for assistance. When authorities arrived on the scene, Bryant, who was armed with a knife for defense, was shot. Reardon has been cleared of all allegations.

Bryant’s foster mother, Angela Moore, subsequently confessed that a filthy house was to blame for the altercation that occurred before she was slain. When two of her former foster children came to Columbus to celebrate her birthday on April 20, she said the women began fussing with Bryant about the house being unclean.

She explained, “It was over keeping the house tidy.” “The older one told them that they needed to clean up the house because ‘Mom doesn’t like dirty houses.’ So there you have it. That’s how it all began.”

Following Bryant’s death, Columbus Mayor Andrew Ginther requested that the Department of Justice investigate the police department. According to the Associated Press, Ginther and City Attorney Zach Klein wrote a letter stating that the city needed additional assistance to reform the agency in the wake of a series of recent police killings of Black people and the department’s response to protests following the death of George Floyd.

“This isn’t about a single officer, policy, or event; rather, it’s about revamping Columbus’ entire policing system,” Ginther and Klein wrote before. “To put it bluntly, we need to overhaul the Columbus Division of Police’s culture.”
