An Ohio teen was shot and killed Tuesday when a fight broke out in her foster home. Just as the guilty verdict against Derek Chauvin was handed down, police killed her.
"Authorities said they received a call at 4:35 p.m about a reported stabbing on the 3100 block of Legion Lane," said the Columbus Dispatch. "The caller identified the person with a knife as a female," but gave no other details and hung up.
"Hazel Bryant told The Dispatch that she is the aunt of the 15-year-old girl who was shot," said the report. "The girl lived in a foster home there on Legion Lane and got into an altercation with someone else at the home, she said."
Her aunt said that the teen wasn't holding a knife when police shot her and that she was the one who called the police for help.
"We don't get to celebrate nothing," said protester K.C. Taynor after the Chauvin verdict. "...In the end, you know what, you can't be Black."
"Paula Bryant tells me her 16-year-old daughter Ma'Khia Bryant was an honor roll student and a sweet child," said reporter Lacy Crisp.
Columbus officials released body-camera footage Tuesday night that shows a police officer firing four shots at Bryant after she rushes towards another woman with a knife.
