Warning Graphic Video: Police Release Body Cam Footage of Teen Girl Killed By Police

Police released bodycam footage from an officer who shot a knife-wielding teen in Columbus on Tuesday.

The teen was confirmed by the family to be 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant. The graphic video begins at the moment the officer exits his vehicle and then encounters the teen who appears to be armed with a knife chasing a girl outside of a home.

Bryant appears to swing a knife at another girl, moments before the officer fires his weapon, striking Bryant, who died a short time later.
