The Columbus Division of Police has yet to identify the involved officers. He said the officer, who was not named, has been placed on administrative leave. The city's public safety director, Ned Pettus, Jr., appealed for calm while the investigation proceeds and facts are uncovered in what he called "a devastating" loss of life.

Bryant had reportedly called emergency services because older kids had threatened her with assault. "In any way you look at this, it's a tragedy".

Hazel Bryant told The Dispatch that she is the aunt of Ma'Khia Bryant.

The video appears to show that officer later tell another officer who is attending to the shot girl, "she came at her with a knife".

The outlet reported that "following the shooting, a crowd gathered at the scene upset at police". About 50 people had gathered by 8:30 p.m. ". In the end, you know what, you can't be Black". The shooting took place a short time later, according to police. "Why did they kill this baby?" she asked aloud.

Mike Fair, 63, of the East Side, brought an amplifier and a microphone to the scene, and expressed his anger, suggesting "there should be an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth".

Hana Abdur-Rahim, with the Black Abolitionists Collective, said, "We are in a literal genocide".

Police showed bodycam footage Tuesday night at a news conference of the officer shooting the girl, who was Black, as she appeared to attempt to stab two people with a knife. "We do not know all of the details". This is not all right, it's not OK, and it can't continue on. But we thought it was important to share with the community to be transparent about this incident. But the truth is that nothing that we will do will bring this young baby girl back.
