Body camera footage from the incident showed Bryant pushing one woman down on the sidewalk before swinging a knife at a different woman.

We will focus on reports from police officials and other authorities, credible news outlets and reporters who are at the scene, and we will update as the situation develops.” The earliest archived version of NPR’s article regarding the shooting death of Ma’khia Bryant, a 16-year-old in Columbus, Ohio, only cited the family.
