A 15-year-old girl was shot and killed by police on Tuesday afternoon, reportedly about the same time as the ‘guilty’ verdict in the Derek Chauvin trial came in. The girl’s name is Makiyah Bryant, who was pronounced dead at 5:21 p.m.

Protesters appeared in Columbus, Ohio and carried out a strikingly well-organized march on behalf of Makiyah Bryant.

It turns out, as earlier reported, that Makiyah Bryant indeed had a knife. The Columbus, Ohio police released body cam footage that shows what happened. WATCH:

Video: Canton police release footage of deadly New Years shooting

Authorities have released body camera footage from a deadly shooting involving a Canton police officer that took place early Saturday morning. The footage begins with an officer outside of a home in the 2300 block of 10th Street Southwest shortly after midnight. He can be heard relaying information about his location when gunshots ring out from a fenced in area nearby.

“The officer, who was outside of his vehicle, confronted a subject that began shooting a firearm. The officer, in fear for his safety, fired his duty weapon at the subject and struck him.”

Authorities say the man was taken to an area hospital, but later died. He has since been identified as 46 year-old James Williams. The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation is investigating the situation.

Williams’ wife told the Canton Repository that he was shooting celebratory gunfire into the air to ring in the New Year. “Out of the blue, he said he got shot, he got hit. I don’t know where it came from. Nobody said anything. They didn’t say, ‘Police.’ They didn’t say, ‘Freeze.’ They didn’t say, ‘Drop your weapon.’ They just shot him.”

Shooting at Tacoma’s largest mall… Suspect on the loose…

Suspect on the loose

The shooting began just after 7 p.m. Saturday near the mall’s food court. Officer Gary Wurges said two off duty officers working at the mall quickly called in that shots had been fired. One person, a male, was injured in the shooting and taken to a hospital for treatment of serious injuries. He was in stable condition.

As shoppers fled the gunfire, officers attempted to locate the shooter. More than 60 law enforcement officers from Tacoma, Pierce County, Lakewood, Puyallup and the Washington State Patrol responded.

KOMO reported that officers working in the mall saw a small group get into a dispute that escalated with gunfire.

As the mall went into lockdown, shoppers left inside sheltered in place or hid inside stores.

“We were about to get up and I hear about six shots or something,” Daisey Dockter, who was finishing a meal with her aunt and uncle when gunfire broke out, told KOMO. “We all just start running toward the door. It’s a huge mob of people. Everyone’s kind of pushing.”

Fredrick Hoskins was shopping with his daughter when he heard gunfire.

“There was a boom, boom, boom … boom, boom, boom. Maybe like six shots,” Hoskins, who previously served in the military, told The News Tribune. “It sounded like a revolver, and it sounded like one shooter.”

The Tacoma Mall is Tacoma’s largest shopping mall, with more than 100 stores.
