A black teenage girl was shot dead by police in Ohio on Tuesday minutes after a guilty verdict was returned in the case of the officer who killed George Floyd. Family of the teenager, named by local media as Makiah Bryant, 15, said she had called police for help because girls were fighting outside her house on Legion Lane in the city of Columbus. A video circulated on social media which appeared to show a victim wearing jeans and trainers lying motionless on the ground as a police officer stood nearby. Witnesses say the girl was shot in the chest. Crowds gathered near the scene shortly after the shooting, which occurred around 4.30pm, and began shouting “no racist police” and "enough is enough" at officers gathered. In another video broadcast from the scene, one of the officers yells back: "Blue lives matter". “She was a good kid. She was loving,” Hazel Bryant, who said the child was her niece, told reporters. She said the girl lived in a foster home and got into an altercation with someone else at the home. “She was 15 years old. She didn’t deserve to die like a dog in the street,” she said.
