Cleveland, OH (ABC News) – An Ohio Grand Jury has declined to file charges against police officers in the death of Tamir Rice, a 12-year-old boy who was shot dead by a Cleveland Police Department police officer last year, Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Timothy McGinty said Monday.
“The grand jury completed the investigation today,” McGinty said, adding that he recommended that no charges be filed.
ABC News reached out to Rice’s family’s attorney for comment.
Tamir was holding a toy gun when he was shot by officer Timothy Loehmann at a Cleveland playground in November 2014.
The grand jury was hearing evidence to determine if any charges would be brought against Loehmann or his partner.
