Guardian News published this video item, entitled “Protests erupt in Ohio after police fatally shoot teenager: ‘Black girls matter'” – below is their description.

Police in Columbus, Ohio, fatally shot a 16-year-old girl on Tuesday afternoon, just moments before Derek Chauvin was found guilty of murdering George Floyd. The girl was identified by local media as Ma’Khia Bryant. Protesters gathered on Tuesday night at the scene on Legion Lane, which police had partially blocked off to traffic, while other demonstrators rallied at the city’s police headquarters.

This story has been updated to correct the spelling of Ma’Khia Bryant’s first name and age.
