REPORT: Ma’Khia Bryant Dispute Started Over ‘Messy House and Unmade Bed’


From Fox News:

The argument that preceded the fatal police shooting of 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant in Columbus, Ohio, earlier this week began over a messy house and unmade bed, her foster mother has revealed. 

Angela Moore said Thursday the dispute occurred when two of her former foster children were at her home in east Columbus to celebrate her birthday on Tuesday. 

“It was over keeping the house clean,” Moore told CNN. “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,” she added. 

Surveillance video of the ensuing altercation shows four people standing in front of that home. As Columbus police officer Nicholas Reardon is pulling up to the house, Bryant and two other people appear to come out of the front door.

Seconds later, Bryant lunges with an apparent knife at one woman, 20, who had been standing in the driveway of the home, forcing her to the ground. A man, 43, started kicking the woman as she tried to get up. 

Bryant then turned to another woman, 22, with the knife, at which point Reardon discharged four shots from his firearm, fatally striking Bryant. 

In 911 calls Columbus Police have released of the incident, an unidentified female can be heard speaking while arguing goes on in the background.
