Tuesday, George Floyd attorney Ben Crump tweeted “As we breathed a collective sigh of relief today, a community in Columbus felt the sting of another police shooting as @ColumbusPolice killed an unarmed 15yo Black girl named Makiyah Bryant. Another child lost! Another hashtag. #JusticeForMakiyahBryant”
Many Twitter users replied that the term “unarmed” is not accurate and Bryant appeared to be ready to kill or seriously injure another teen girl.

You don’t have to have a fancy law degree to see victim 1 being kicked by the male after being stabbed while victim 2 is stabbed. Offender, weilding knife in hand. pic.twitter.com/sGyL1GAfz9

LeBron later admitted deleting the tweet.
Per NBC News “Body camera video appears to show a fight when the officer arrives. Two females are in a confrontation, and one falls to the ground in front of the officer. The girl who was later shot appears to move toward another person near a car, and the officer appears to repeat, “get down” before firing four times.”
