The 911 dispatcher who took the call that led to the death of a 12-year-old boy has resigned.

Tamir Rice was fatally wounded on Nov. 22 by a Cleveland police officer. The incident has sparked national outcry about what feels like several Black men and women murdered by police in recent years.

Police Dispatcher Beth Mandl resigned from her position, citing "stress" as a factor.

On the day of the incident, Mandl took a call from a resident who told her the gun was "probably fake, but you know what, it's scaring me."

That message was not relayed to Officers Timothy Loehmann and Frank Garmback, who responded to the call.
