On Wednesday, NBA player LeBron James posted a photo of the Columbus police officer who saved the life of an unarmed girl by shooting her attacker, a black teenage girl armed with a knife, with the caption, “YOU’RE NEXT. #ACCOUNTABILITY.”
The National Fraternal Order of Police responded to his tweet, writing, “@KingJames, with his vast resources & influence, should educate himself and, frankly, has a responsibility to do so, on the facts before weighing in. This is disgraceful & extremely reckless. The officer saved a young girl’s life. No amount of gaslighting will change that fact.”

The shooting occurred on Tuesday after officers responded to an emergency-911 call reporting an attempted stabbing. Bodycam footage showed the Columbus police fatally shot Makiyah Bryant, a black teenage girl, as she tried to stab another girl, presumably saving the life of the unarmed girl.

“We know based on this footage the officer took action to protect another young girl in our community,” Columbus Mayor Andrew explained as the police department released the bodycam video. “We think it’s critically important to share as much information as possible. We’ll continue to share footage and other information as quickly as possible.”
