A mob of BLM protesters gathered outside of the Columbus Police headquarters Tuesday night after an officer-involved shooting death of 15-year-old Makiyah Bryant.
According to WBNS, officers were called to the 3100 block of Legion Lane just after 4:30 PM for a stabbing and a shots fired call at 4:45 PM.
The police shot a 15-year-old girl who reportedly was carrying a knife.
15-year-old Makiyah Bryant was also reportedly involved in a fight before police responded to reports of an attempted stabbing.
No other details of the officer-involved shooting was released Tuesday night, however Columbus Mayor Andrew Ginther said the officer’s bodycam footage will be reviewed as soon as possible.
Members of the Black Liberation Movement showed up to the scene of the shooting Tuesday to confront police officers.
An angry crowd chanting Makiyah Bryant’s name formed outside of the Columbus police headquarters.
