Over the weekend, an Ohio County prosecutor released a 224-page report detailing the events surrounding the killing of 12-year-old Tamir Rice, who was fatally shot by Officer Timothy Loehmann last November while holding a toy gun. Though investigators didn't speak to officers, witnesses said that Loehmann told them shortly after the shooting that he "had no choice," even though surveillance video shows Loehmann shooting Rice within two seconds of arriving at the scene. Witnesses also said that Loehmann didn't give Rice a warning before firing his gun.

Since the 12-year-old was fatally shot last November, no arrests have been made, and no officers have been charged with his death

The mother of Tamir Rice is demanding that a special prosecutor be hired to investigate the November death of her 12-year-old son.

Rice was fatally shot by Cleveland Officer Timothy Loehmann last Nov. 22 while holding a toy gun in a public park. A 911 caller reported a boy holding a "probably fake" gun, but the description of the firearm was never passed along to officers by the 911 operator. Within two seconds of arriving at the scene, Loehmann exited his car and shot Rice, who died at a hospital the following day.

Officer Acted 'Reasonably' in Tamir Rice Shooting, Investigators Find

A medical examiner ruled Rice's death a homicide, and in May, investigators completed their probe into the case. However, 11 months after the fatal shooting, no arrests have been made. Last week, two outside investigators found that Loehmann acted "reasonably" in shooting Rice. Their findings have been passed along to a grand jury.

Rice's mother, Samaria Rice, is calling for justice. "Since the senseless shooting of my son, Tamir, I have had many sleepless nights and days," she said at a press conference on Friday. "Almost a year, no justice, no peace. I am very disappointed in the way [county prosecutor] Timothy McGinty is handling this investigation. I would like for him to step down and allow an independent prosecutor to take over."

McGinty has not responded to Rice's demand.
