COLUMBUS, Ohio – Police shot and killed a teenage girl on Tuesday in Columbus, just before a jury convicted former Minneapolis cop Derek Chauvin of the death of George Floyd last year.

In an unprecedented move, Columbus police later showed body camera footage of an officer shooting the girl, who was black, as she appeared to be attempting to stab two people with a knife.

The video shows an officer approaching an alley with a group of young people standing there. In the video, it appears the teenager, who was shot dead moments later by police, pushes or swings someone who falls to the ground.

As the footage continues, the teen then appears to swing a knife at a girl who is on the hood of a car, and the officer fires his gun which looks like four times, hitting the girl.
