Family members say a 16-year-old girl was fatally shot by police in Columbus, Ohio, Tuesday afternoon.

The city's mayor confirmed that a "young woman tragically lost her life," but police remained mum on the incident hours later.

WBNS-TV reported that the girl shot by police was 16-year-old Ma'Khia Bryant, according to the girl's mother, Paula Bryant. The incident happened around 4:30 p.m.

Earlier reports, including from The Daily Beast, cited the girl as being 15-years-old, according to a woman purporting to be the girl's aunt.

The outlet reported that according to the woman, Hazel Bryant, Ma'Khia "called the police because someone in her house was abusing her," and "that police saw a knife on the ground near Makiyah and shot the teenager four times."
