Tamir Rice Investigation Report Released

June 15, 2015  | 

The investigation into the fatal police shooting of 12-year-old Tamir Rice includes new details about how Cleveland officers behaved at the scene, the efforts to save Tamir's life and the remorse of the boy who gave Tamir his airsoft pellet gun.

The Cuyahoga County Prosecutor's Office released a redacted account of the investigation on Saturday. The 224-page report, compiled by Sheriff's Department investigators, offers no determination as to whether the Nov. 22, 2014 shooting was justified.

The report also includes accounts from witnesses – none of whom heard officers issue a warning to Tamir before one of them opened fire outside a West Side recreation center. That contrasts with statements made by police that the officers ordered Tamir to "show your hands" three times before a shot was fired, Cleveland.com reports.
