The autopsy report of Ma’Khia Bryant, a Black teenager tragically shot by an Ohio police officer in April, has been revealed. 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 ruled 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 little girl called the police for assistance. Bryant, who was armed with a knife for defense, was shot by the officers who responded to a distress call. No charges have been filed against Reardon.

Bryant is seen carrying a knife while going after another individual at the scene, according to body camera footage obtained by the Columbus Police Department. Before Bryant slumped to the ground, Reardon’s video caught the officer firing his gun four times.

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

“It was over keeping the house clean,” she explained. “The older one told them to clean up the house because ‘Mom doesn’t like the house dirty.’ So, that’s how it all started.”

Following Bryant’s death, Columbus Mayor Andrew Ginther requested that the Department of Justice investigate the police service.

According to the Associated Press, Ginther and City Attorney Zach Klein wrote a letter indicating that the city required extra assistance to transform the agency after a spate of recent police deaths of Black people and the department’s response to protests following the death of George Floyd.

“This is not about one particular officer, policy, or incident; rather, this is about reforming the entire institution of policing in Columbus,” Ginther and Klein previously stated. “Simply put: We need to change the culture of the Columbus Division of Police.”
