A grand jury has decided not to indict two white Cleveland police officers who fatally shot a 12-year-old Cleveland boy last November.

Tamir Rice was killed by Officer Timothy Loehmann less than two seconds after police arrived at the scene. Rice was playing with a pellet gun at the time of his death.

Prosecutors say plenty of mistakes were made that led to the tragedy.

They say someone had removed an orange tip to the gun that Tamir was playing with. The part would’ve helped law enforcement officials to distinguish the gun from a real one. Prosecutors also say no one intervened despite Tamir wielding the toy gun for at least two hours before police were called.
