No Witnesses Heard Officer Warn Tamir Rice Before Killing Him

Tamir Rice

Cleveland prosecutors have released the results of an investigation into the killing of 12-year-old Tamir Rice, who was shot and killed by a police officer. The Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s Office released a redacted version of the 224-page report, which was compiled by Sheriff’s Department investigators, which examines the events that led up to and followed the shooting of the Black youth in November. There is a lot of information in the report, but one of the most significant findings appears to be that the investigators could not find a single witness who heard police officer Timothy Loehmann issue a warning before opening fire, reports the Northeast Ohio Media Group. Loehmann has said he ordered Rice to show his hands three times before opening fire.
