Investigation Opened Into Police Shooting of Teen Girl With Knife
An investigation is underway in Ohio after a deadly police-involved shooting of a 16-year-old girl.
Police say they were responding to a 911 caller who said someone was trying to stab them.
When officers arrived, body cam footage shows Ma’khia Bryant holding a knife as she chases someone.
Another girl falls to the ground right before an officer fires four shots at Bryant.
Police performed CPR on Bryant, but she died shortly after.
The officer who shot Bryant has been placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation into the incident.
