The Columbus, Ohio Police Department said the fatal shooting of a 15-year-old Black girl by a police officer was justified.

The department released police body cam video that showed an officer firing the fatal shots at Makiyah Bryant as she apparently attacked another woman with a knife.

The incident occurred on Tuesday, April 20, around 4:45 p.m., in the front yard of a private residence. Police arrived at the scene during an altercation between Bryant and two other women.

The video footage shows one woman fall to the ground at the officer's feet. The officer shouts "What's going on?" as Bryant attacked a woman wearing a pink jumpsuit and holding a small dog.

The cop spotted a knife in Bryant's hand as he turned to pursue her. He drew his service weapon and yelled, "Get down! Get down!" before firing the fatal shots.

Bryant slumped to the ground as the woman in pink fled into the house, pursued by the small dog.

Still images from the video shows what appears to be a kitchen knife on the driveway next to Bryant.

Bryant's mother said her daughter called 911 because she was being attacked. However, Bryant appeared to be the aggressor in the video clips.

Former Minneapolis cop Derek Chauvin was found guilty on all counts in the death of George Floyd in Minnesota.

The jury sent word to the judge that a verdict had been reached after 12 hours of deliberations on Tuesday afternoon.

Floyd died on May 25, 2020 when Chauvin kneeled on his back and neck for 8 minutes.

The National Guard moved into downtown Minneapolis ahead of the verdict announcement. Black Lives Matter activists threatened to burn the city down if the verdict was not guilty.

Floyd's death touched off protests, riots and mayhem in Democratic strongholds around the country.

Three former Minneapolis officers are awaiting trial in Floyd's death.

The manhunt for former Austin sheriff's detective Stephen Broderick ended with his arrest on Monday morning.

He was arrested without incident after motorists spotted a suspicious man walking along a highway at 7:30 a.m.

As he was placed in handcuffs, police removed a loaded handgun from his waistband.

Broderick, 41, was wanted in the shooting deaths of his ex-wife, Amanda Broderick, their adopted teenage daughter, Alyssa, and the girl's boyfriend, Willie Simmons III, 18.

Travis County court records shows Amanda Broderick, 34, filed for a restraining order in June 2020 after her daughter, Alyssa, 17, accused her father of touching her inappropriately.

Alyssa said Broderick had raped her repeatedly in the past. The protective order was approved by a judge about three weeks after Amanda first accused Broderick of raping Alyssa.

In her application, Amanda (pictured) said she was "afraid he will try to hurt me and my children." She said Broderick was "SWAT trained" and "If he wanted to hurt someone, he would know how."

In June 2020, three days after the alleged rape, U.S. Marshals arrested Broderick. He was booked into the Travis County Jail, where he spent 16 days before posting a bail of $50,000.

The former Travis County sheriff's detective was placed on administrative leave. He later lost his job.

A judge ordered him to wear a GPS ankle monitor and he was prohibited from possessing firearms, according to an arrest affidavit obtained by KXAN News.

Broderick was prohibited from contacting or going within 200 yards of the teenager.

In court documents, Alyssa said she was afraid that "a protective order will be just a piece of paper" to her father.

In November, a judge ordered the ankle monitor to be removed. Broderick's lawyer argued that his client wore the GPS monitor for nearly 150 days with no violations.

On Sunday, Broderick arranged a meeting with Amanda for a scheduled visit with the couple's minor son. Broderick rammed his car into Amanda's vehicle at an apartment complex in northwest Austin.

Broderick fired multiple shots, killing all three victims, before fleeing the scene on foot, police said in a statement.

Responding officers found the three victims with gunshot wounds lying near the two vehicles. They were pronounced dead at the scene.

The couple's minor son was not injured. A witness removed the boy from the scene and turned him over to Austin police officers.

The Internet claims a 7-year-old Chicago girl was killed in a McDonald's drive-thru because her father received a PPP loan.

Jontae Adams, 28, and his daughter Jaslyn were in the drive-thru at a McDonald's fast food restaurant when she was shot on Sunday, April 18.

A McDonald's employee who asked to remain anonymous told the Chicago Sun-Times that two men got out of a gray car in the drive-thru and started shooting into Adams' car.

Jaslyn died from multiple gunshot wounds and her father was seriously injured in a shooting, according to THV11 News.

Facebook users say the thugs targeted Adams because his name appeared on a list of PPP loan recipients published by the Small Business Association.

A search of the database shows a Jontae Adams in Chicago received a $20,000 emergency pandemic loan for his small business.

After the list was published, Adams took to Facebook and joked that his opposition was probably downstairs waiting for him.

No arrests have been made in the case. The girl's death is the latest shooting in Chicago involving children.

Riots broke out after 13-year-old Adam Toledo, a gang member whose nickname was "Lil Homicide", was killed by a police officer in a dark alley in March.

Indianapolis PD

Authorities have identified the teenager who shot and killed eight Fed-Ex employees in Indianapolis and wounded several others.

Police say Brandon Scott Hole, 19, shot four people outside the FedEx facility near the Indianapolis airport on Thursday night.

The former Fed-ex employee then entered the facility and killed four others before turning the gun on himself.

Five people were hospitalized with bullet wounds. One is in critical condition, police say.

The FBI identified Hole and released a recent mugshot of him to the news media.

Hole's mother had warned police that he planned to commit "suicide by cop," the FBI said.

Hole was questioned last year and police seized a weapon from him after his mother warned authorities that he might try "suicide by cop."

CNN reporter Ana Cabrera tweeted, "The suspect in the Indianapolis mass shooting was known to federal and local authorities prior to the attack."

Federal agents served a search warrant on Hole's home, and seized evidence including computers and electronic devices early Friday.

A man physically assaulted a much smaller woman at a Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) office in Missouri.

Cell phone video shows a woman speaking with a DMV employee about her driver's license. The woman became upset and turned to leave. That's when the Black man approached her and assaulted her.

The man, who was dressed in causal clothing, identified himself as a police officer. After exchanging words with her, he grabbed the woman by the neck and began punching her repeatedly, knocking her to the floor.

The man stood over her and threatened her, telling her to "stay down."

No one in the DMV stepped forward to assist the young lady.

Eventually, a police officer arrived and placed the woman in handcuffs -- even though she was assaulted.

The video is an example of the double standard that exists in America. If the man had been white, all hell would break loose.

A Chicago police union boss says a police officer who shot a 13-year-old boy around 2:30 a.m. in a dark alley last month, was "100% justified".

The shooting sparked public outcry after news outlets published a still image from a police body cam video that showed Adam Toledo raising his empty hands before he was killed.

Chicago police released edited police body cam video earlier this week. The video shows the boy tossing something and quickly raising his hands.

Officials say the teenager tossed a handgun away and then raised his hands before he was shot a split second later.

John Catanzara, president of Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 7, told CNN the shooting was justified.

"In reality, an average human being could not block someone from slapping him in the face in less time than that," Catanzara said.

"It's a good reason why the officer only shot once. He would have been justified to shoot multiple times."

Police responded to a shots fired call at 2 a.m. in the Little Village neighborhood on March 29. Cops detained a 21-year-old man, Ruben Roman, who was with the boy in the alley.

Prosecutors say Roman handed the firearm to Adam, who fled the scene with the gun.

Surveillance video in the area shows a police officer in foot pursuit of the teen as he fled down an alley.

At the end of the alley, the boy stopped, tossed a small handgun behind a wooden fence, and quickly raised his hands. A split second later he was on the ground, suffering from a sucking bullet wound to the chest.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Catanzara said Adam was a young gang member. "He should have been in school. But we're not in school learning, now are we?"

"I started my dissertation with saying it is 100 percent justified," Catanzara said.

"That officer's actions were actually heroic. There's a very good reason why he only shot once. Like I said, he could have been shot multiple times but the officer assessed in a split second. Unfortunately he committed to the first shot already. Justifiably so."

A high school basketball and track team coach died when he and his brother-in-law attempted to rob a Mexican drug cartel stash house in North Carolina.

Police say Barney Harris and his brother-in-law Steven Stewart Jr. used cell phone apps to pinpoint the locations of the Sinaloa New Generation Cartel stash houses.

Authorities say Harris lived a double life. He coached high school basketball while moonlighting to steal money and drugs from cartels.

Harris (left) and Stewart (right) apparently targeted the cartels because their members are unlikely to call the police when they are robbed.

Unfortunately, the cartel members had more firepower and a gunfight ensued when Harris and Alexander broke into the mobile home in the early morning hours of April 8.

Harris's bullet-riddled body was found in one of the bedrooms. His bulletproof vest offered little protection against the cartel's high-powered arsenal.

The high school where Harris coached basketball and taught Spanish honored him with a memorial page. However, the page was removed when the circumstances surrounding Harris's death were revealed.

Atlanta PD

Violent crime in Atlanta is up 60% in Atlanta since January. The Atlanta Police Department took to Facebook to beg gang members to stop shooting each other.

The Atlanta Police Department launched a "Think before you shoot" campaign on Facebook, begging residents to please stop shooting at each other.

"Healthy conflict resolution requires maturity. Choosing guns to resolve conflict does not. Think before you shoot," the campaign reads.

The most recent homicide was Wednesday afternoon when a 30-year-old man was gunned down at a southeast Atlanta park.

And two security guards were shot over the weekend at rapper 2 Chainz's nightclub.

Police say the bouncers were shot and wounded at Members Only Lounge off Ralph McGill Boulevard at around 3:30 a.m. Sunday.

Prince Williams/ATLPics.net

The lounge is a joint venture between 2 Chainz and club promoter Mychel "Snoop" Dillard.

"We're hoping that people will see the message and think twice before they resort to picking up a gun," APD spokeswoman Chata Spikes told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

"Anger + Guns Adds Up to Nothing Good. You cannot put the bullet back in the chamber once it is discharged," the post reads. "Many have learned this the hard way."

The murder rate in Atlanta has tripled in the first three months of 2021. In three more months, the murder rate will equal all of last year's Atlanta homicides.

The situation is so dire that the Mayor's Office and the City Council considered paying gang members to stop shooting at each other.

Atlanta's murder rate is on pace to become the highest in the city's history.
