15-year-old girl fatally shot by police in Ohio

Columbus police on scene of an officer-involved shooting on Tuesday

According to The Columbus Dispatch it was at 4:35 PM EST when 911 received a call about an "attempted stabbing".

The police chief said the video, which he said shows the slain teenager trying to stab both females, was released to the public within hours of the incident in the interest of "transparency".

After officers arrived at the scene, around 4:44 p.m., an officer-involved shooting was reported.

The officer who opened fire was not identified but appears from the video to be white.

The teenager immediately collapses against the parked auto and onto the ground, and the weapon, which appears to be a kitchen-style knife, is seen lying on the pavement near her as an officer crouches at her side to render medical aid.

The Columbus Division of Police has yet to identify the involved officers.

Makiyah was transported to a nearby hospital in critical condition.

Columbus police later produced bodycam footage of the incident, showing several people attacking a person before the girl was shot several times.

The shooting happened about 25 minutes before a judge read the verdict convicting former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin of murder and manslaughter in the killing of Floyd.

Local reporter Alexis Moberger of WSYX took another video.

A man immediately yells at the officer, "You didn't have to shoot her!" Either you report the truth, or don't report nothing. Ok? "Yeah she had issues, but that's OK". But that's ok! All of us go through shit. The officer then opens fire at the direction of Bryant, after which she falls to the ground. "She didn't deserve to die like a dog in the street".

"She came at them with a knife", the officer can be heard saying as other officers tended to the girl on the ground. "The cop started shooting once he pulled up & got out the auto!"

Video taken at the scene shortly after the shooting shows two police officers kneeling over the girl, who is lying near a vehicle at the end of a driveway. Officers pushed back protesters and threatened to use pepper spray on the protesters.
