15-year-old United States girl killed in police shooting

15-year-old United States girl killed in police shooting

Chauvin was found guilty of all three counts of murder and manslaughter yesterday following the May 2020 death of Floyd, who died after the former police officer knelt on his neck for over nine minutes.

And he noted that police had responded to the scene after a 911 caller reported that "someone was trying to stab them".

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.

Bryant said her niece had a knife, but maintained that the girl dropped the knife before she was shot multiple times by a police officer. "Get down!" Bryant then appears to lunge toward a second girl with the knife, as the officer continued to yell "Get Down!" That's when the officer pulls his gun and fires four shots.

The police chief said the department was releasing video to the public within hours of the incident in the interest of "transparency". The suspect was later identified by her family as 15-year-old Makiyah Bryant.

Columbus Mayor Andrew Ginther confirmed the fatal shooting, saying on Twitter that "a young woman tragically lost her life".

He later said at the news conference: "We know based on this footage the officer took action to protect another young girl in our community". "She could be my grandchild", said Ned Pettus, the Columbus director of public safety.

Bryant said Ma'Khia had been living in a foster home and that several adult women came to the home and began an altercation with her, after which Ma'Khia called police for help, as well as her biological father and grandmother, the Daily Beast said.

A black-handled blade resembling a kitchen knife or steak knife appeared to be lying on the sidewalk next to her immediately after she was shot and fell.

Hazel Bryant told The Dispatch that she is the aunt of Ma'Khia Bryant. "Tonight we pray for this family, we pray for this city, and we pray for our neighbours", Ginther said.

While police declined to release her name until next of kin had been notified, several local media outlets have identified the victim as Ma'Khia Bryant, citing family members. They deserve answers, the city deserves answers. There is body-worn camera footage of the incident.

Protesters with Black Lives Matter signs, megaphones and a loudspeaker joined the crowd gathered behind crime scene tape about a half-block away from the shooting scene.

Stay tuned as more information becomes available. That will be decided at a later point during an administrative review, and it will be done only after the BCI concludes its own investigation.

Officials say an officer noticed that one of the girls, later identified as Ma'Khia, was holding a knife. "Because as you're getting one phone call that he was guilty, I'm getting the next phone call that this is happening in my neighbourhood".
