Ma’Khia Bryant shooting latest updates – Ex-teacher describes her as a student who ‘desperately wanted a better life’

MA’KHIA Bryant’s former teacher said the teen “desperately wanted better for her life” before she was shot dead by a cop in Ohio.

The 16-year-old was fatally shot in Columbus on Tuesday – just moments before Derek Chauvin was found guilty of murdering George Floyd.

Her ex-teacher, Austin Owens, said that Ma’Khia “was going to run the world” and had emailed him about her five-year plan on the same day she was killed.

“The language she used in her five-year plan was somebody who desperately wanted better for her life,” Mr Owens, who works at Independence High School, told WCMH

“And she wanted to make her parent proud. She wanted to be a productive citizen. I’m not paraphrasing – these are her exact words.

“She was going to run the world and she wasn’t going to be ostentatious about it. She was going to do it.”

The police officer who shot Ma’Khia is a military-trained marksman, according to reports.

Nicholas Reardon, who has been identified as the Columbus police officer , is a US Air National Guardsman who received an expert marksman badge with an M4 Carbine, according to The Daily Beast.
