Angela Moore, Ma’Khia Bryant’s foster mom, revealed that the girls were fighting over an unmade bad on Tuesday before things went violent.
“It was over keeping the house clean,” she said. “The older one told them to clean up the house because ‘Mom doesn’t like the house dirty’. So that’s how it all started.”
The girl dressed in pink was a former foster child of Moore and was along with another teen visiting her home ahead of her birthday.
“You’re not the guardian of me,” Bryant replied. Moore added that arguments between the children were common: “They argue all the time, but I never thought it would escalate like that.”
The mom recalled a frantic call from her daughter in pink who was being attacked: “Mom, get home. Where are you?”
“They’re going crazy. She said they shot Ma’Khia and I said ‘Huh?’ It was just crazy.”
Moore said that she started praying and then received texts from people, sharing the grim news.
“I never in my worst nightmare would have thought it would ever come to this.”
