COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Law enforcement records show that the younger sister of Ma’Khia Bryant called 911 asking to leave their Ohio foster home a few weeks before the fatal police shooting of Bryant.
The 16-year-old was killed by a Columbus officer April 20 as she swung a knife at a woman.
In a 911 call on March 28, Bryant’s 15-year-old sister told a police dispatcher she’d gotten in a fight with her sister and didn’t want to be in the home anymore.
The Associated Press obtained records showing that call was one of more than a dozen placed from the home since 2017, most by the home’s foster mother.
Bryant’s funeral took place Friday afternoon.
