Officers responded to a home on Legion Lane at about 4:45 p.m. after a person called 911 to report females were trying to stab them, according to Columbus Police Chief Michael Woods.
A teen girl was shot and killed by a Columbus police officer Tuesday evening.
The Columbus Division of Police released the body camera video during a news conference Tuesday night.
It shows a commotion in a front yard. The officer is seen walking up to a group of juveniles who start fighting. The officer yelled, “Get down” repeatedly before shooting the girl. Multiple gunshots can be heard on the video.
“You can see what the video shows is the female with the knife attempting to stab the first female that lands on the ground and then the second female who is pushed against the vehicle,” Woods said before playing the video in slow motion.
Woods said the information he released Tuesday night was not based on interviews with witnesses or officers. Those will be conducted by the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation, which will handle the criminal investigation.
“She came at her with a knife,” an officer is heard saying on the video.
