Teenage Girl Is Officer Fatally Shot by the Police in Columbus

Police shot and killed a teenage girl Tuesday in Columbus, just before a jury convicted former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin in the death of George Floyd last year. A bodycam video is released by the police in Ohio Tuesday night of the fatal shooting of a teenage girl earlier in the day.

According to the police, the girl had threatened two other girls with a knife before an officer opened fire. Police at the press conference could not confirm who called 911. Police and city officials also referred to the victim as a 15-year-old throughout the press conference.

The teenager appears to swing a knife at a girl who is in the hood of a car, and the officer fires his weapon what sounds like four times, striking the girl. She collapsed to the ground next to a car that had been parked in the driveway, where the body camera footage showed a knife on the ground.
