Two Arrests Made in Connection to Bryant Murder

On Monday, January 31, the Tallahassee Police Department made a second arrest connected to the murder of Florida A&M University graduate student MaKayla Bryant which occurred on January 26.

After an investigation by TPD, Khalil Ogilvie, age 26, was charged with first-degree felony murder and remains in Leon County Detention Facility without bail.

According to TPD, the shooting resulted from an illegal drug deal that went wrong. Investigators say that Ogilvie agreed to meet Precious Charlton, age 23, at the Providence Pointe apartments to exchange $650 for a quarter-pound of marijuana.

In the release by the TPD investigators, it is reported that Ogilvie approached the passenger side of the car where the victim was sitting and pulled a handgun in an attempt to rob Bryant and Charlton. “The victim grappled with Ogilvie over the handgun, and the gun went off striking and killing her.”

Charlton drove Bryant to Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare for medical assistance, but unfortunately, Bryant died during surgery from her injuries.

Subsequently, Charlton, a current FAMU student, was arrested on January 29 and charged with third-degree felony murder and possession of narcotics with intent to sell.

  1. All the individuals are black. And Khalil Ogilvie has a criminal record that indicates the same old pattern of response from our local Court System….arrests him, charge him, release him. There is no consequence to crime. If Ogilvie first criminal offense had a consequence, he may have turned his life around.

    Everybody wants to be a Gangster. And where is Crump? Another black death and in his community. How come Crump hasn’t ran to the nearest TV camera and spoke out? Where is Allen Sharpton?

  2. Off topic:
    Feb 4 AP story on local WTXL site:
    Warwick GA officer arrested Jan 28 selling weed while working as a police officer. Had scales and baggies in the vehicle he was driving. Probably fake news.

  3. Deep six, it’s clearly the guns .This one just went off on its own! This should really be classified as an accident.maybe sue the manufacturer for some sort of defect.


  4. Rev. R. B. Holmes and other pastors who preach the social justice gospel: Your wisdom of man is powerless to transform lives. Go back to preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ, which is the power of God and the wisdom of God (1 Corinthians 1:18-2:5). “Equity” and “reparations” aren’t going to save the black lives that are being snuffed out indiscriminately every week. You preach a different gospel, for which Paul says you are accursed (Galatians 1:8-9).

  5. I remember when Columbian gold was 90 bucks for a quarter pound. I could err… my friend could sell three ounces for thirty bucks each and get his for free. Hardly worth shooting or robbing someone over. This story is nuts. Its not the drugs, and it’s not the guns, it’s a culture that raises children that are out of control and then sends them out into the world without the necessary life skills to survive. When two young women show up to a drug deal with Pistolas in their laps – they are out of control.
    I feel for the families of all the people involved, one life gone and three in the dock for what is left of theirs. For what? It wasn’t over 2.5 ounces of weed; this failure is much deeper than that.

  6. TPD and LCSO do steal weed to keep in their trunk to plant on people. I’m living proof. An officer was fired for doing it to me multiple times.

  7. Snidely Whiplash, I don’t know which local media outlet you are referencing. I read likely the same article. It reads there was a “little less than 2.5 pounds” found in the car.

    Even though you wrote the LEOs didn’t pocket it, it’s disgusting you would hint TPD officers would do that.

  8. It’s a total tragedy the grad student was killed over a 1/4 pound of weed transaction. One of the local media outlets reported the shooter as saying that it did not look like a 1/4 pound. Then towards the end of the article reported that a little over 2 ounces of weed was found in the ladies car.
    There are 16 ounces in a pound of anything. A 1/4 of a pound of anything would be 4 ounces. As I said in the beginning it’s a total tragedy the grad student was killed over a 1/4 pound of weed transaction.
    Now of course anything could have happened to the other 2 ounces of weed. Probably the LEO’S did not pocket it during the first on the scene investigation. We may never know if there ever was or was not a 1/4 pound of weed in that car. Not that it really matters after the tragic death. But it’s something to think about.
