From Town Hall:

Officers began giving Bryant first aid and throwing the knife away from her body. The incident occurred around the same time the jury announced they had found former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin guilty on second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder, and second-degree manslaughter in the death of George Floyd.

Calling the incident “tragic,” Columbus Mayor Andrew Ginther said, “We know based on this footage, the office took action to protect another young girl in our community.” Bryant’s family maintains she had the knife to protect herself from the group of people who were attacking her.

The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation is investigating the shooting, with the officer who shot Bryant being taken off the street. The news of the shooting sparked outrage on social media while people were celebrating the outcome of the Chauvin trial. BLM protesters showed up at the scene shortly after the shooting.
