Grand Jury Declines to Indict Officers in Tamir Rice Shooting

A grand jury declined Monday to indict two white Cleveland police officers in the death of Tamir Rice, a 12-year-old black boy who was playing with a toy gun in a park when he was shot by police.

Neither Officer Timothy Loehmann, a rookie, and his partner, Officer Frank Garmback, will face any criminal charges in the November 2014 incident, in which Loehmann shot the boy after being called to a Cleveland park where Tamir was playing with the pellet gun.

A bystander’s video of the confrontation shows the officers firing on Rice with seconds of their arrival.

The shooting was one of the flashpoints in the Black Lives Matter movement against police brutality and racism against blacks.
