Ma'Khia Bryant's family gathers for Supper in Ohio

Ma'Khia Bryant will soon be put to rest at a funeral ceremony in the First Church of God in Columbus, Ohio, Friday afternoon.

The screening will begin at dusk and the ceremony will start at 1 p.m.

Body camera footage in the episode showed Bryant using a knife.

And Andre Hill, two Black guys who were murdered by Central Ohio law enforcement in recent weeks, were held in precisely the exact same church.

Masks are needed and social distancing guidelines will be followed in the ceremony.

The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation is exploring Reardon's activities for possible wrongdoing, Columbus Mayor Andrew Ginther said. Reardon was put on paid leave after the shooting.

Attorney Michelle Martin, who's representing Bryant's household, is calling for a Health and Human Services research into Ohio's foster care program, which Bryant was part of, in addition to a probe by the Department of Justice.

Bryant's family does not need to have the teenager to recalled by her sudden departure.

"I need the world to understand my baby was a gifted, bubbly, loving teenager," Paula Bryant, Ma'Khia's mother, told reporters Wednesday. "She should've been gone from this planet. She had a complete life ahead of her that ended in catastrophe. I like my baby. She was a fantastic little woman."
