'She was a child.' White House comments on Ma'Khia Bryant shooting [View all]

Source: Columbus Dispatch

The White House commented on the Ma'Khia Bryant shooting in Columbus calling it “tragic.”

Ma'Khia Bryant, 16, was shot and killed after officers responded to a 911 call about an attempted stabbing in the 3100 block of Legion Lane on the East Side.

The shooting happened about 20 minutes before the guilty verdict was announced in the trial of Derek Chauvin, a former Minneapolis police officer who killed George Floyd.

“She was a child,” press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters Wednesday. “We're thinking of her friends and family in the communities that are hurting and grieving her loss. We know that police violence disproportionately impacts Black and Latino people in communities and that Black women and girls, like Black men and boys, experience higher rates of police violence. We also know that there are particular vulnerabilities that children in foster care, like Ma’Khia, face.”
