Columbus police shoot, kill teen girl, reports say

Ohio Police Kill Black Teenage Girl Who Was Seen Threatening Others With Knife

"She had a knife", the officer who fired his weapon said in response to onlookers' yells.

Bryant then appears to swing a knife at a girl who is on the hood of a auto, and the officer fires his weapon what sounds like four times, striking Bryant, who died a short time later.

"It's a tragic day in the city of Columbus".

Columbus Mayor Andrew Ginther mourned the loss of the young victim but defended the officer's use of deadly force. But they noted the footage they shared with the media had been edited and was incomplete.

A 16-year-old Black girl was fatally shot by an officer outside of her home after she called the police for help on Tuesday afternoon, according to her family.

The 10-second clip begins with the officer getting out of his vehicle at a house where police had been dispatched after someone called 911 saying they were being physically threatened, Interim Police Chief Michael Woods said at the news conference.

The Columbus Dispatch reported a crowd of protesters had gathered near a home on the city's southeast side where the shooting occurred, just minutes before the guilty verdict was announced against the police officer charged with murdering George Floyd past year.

Columbus Fire medics were cleared to come into the scene at 4:46 p.m., police said. She died at the hospital after being taken there in critical condition.

"We will share information that we can as soon as it becomes available".

In a press conference Tuesday night, Columbus interim Chief of Police Michael Woods addressed reporters and confirmed the call to police made around 4:30 p.m. but do not identify who made the call.

"Whether this applies with that will be part of an investigation", he said at the news conference.

"At the conclusion of that investigation, the divisional police will conduct an administrative review of the actions of this officer and all officers at the scene". But things changed quickly, she said. "In any way you look at this, it's a tragedy". Outside, a woman who told him she was the girl's grandmother was distraught, he said, repeating "they didn't have to shoot her, they didn't have to shoot her". Hazel Bryant, who identified herself as the victim's aunt, told the Columbus Dispatch that her niece got into a fight with another person at her foster home on Legion Lane.

But family members have identified her as Makiyah Bryant, aged 16. About 50 people had gathered by 8:30 p.m. What's more, the incident took place just minutes before the Derek Chauvin verdict was read, the outlet said. "They're here to kill black folks".

Mike Fair, 63, of the East Side, brought an amplifier and a microphone to the scene, and expressed his anger, suggesting "there should be an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth". "We do not know all of the details". This is not all right, it's not OK, and it can't continue on. "We know we can't provide every answer, but it's important that we can answer some questions tonight". But the truth is that nothing that we will do will bring this young baby girl back.

Warning: the video shows a fatal shooting.

"I say you never call the police for anything, you call your daddy", Graham said.
