A neighbor of Ma’Khia Bryant says he thinks more people could have died if police hadn’t acted quickly in the incident.
Police body camera footage showed the Bryant, 16, swinging a knife toward two other girls before the fatal shots were fired.
Neighbor Donovan Brinson told The Columbus Dispatch that he was pulling into his driveway as the incident started. He said he “figured it was just a girl fight.” He said the fight got worse and that, while he was inside, he heard gunshots after police responded.
He then reviewed 26 seconds of video from his cameras. He said it showed the fight and he saw the knife involved. He turned the video over to police, Fox 8 reports.
