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.

Today marks the one year anniversary in the shooting death of 12-year-old Cleveland boy, Tamir Rice. 

Rice’s mother, Samaria Rice, along with other family members have been vocal about their disdain with investigation findings even calling for the removal Cuyhoga County Prosecutor Timothy McGinty from the case to “ensure there isn’t any bias,” Huffington Post reports.

In a panel discussion on racism at the United Nations earlier this month, Samira Rice, said she is hoping to receive help in getting justice for her son. 

"I want the world to know that letting a child go outside to play never to come home is a parent’s worst nightmare," she said.

Rice was shot while playing with a toy gun in park by a rookie police officer after a 911 call indicated that a boy was playing with a “probably fake” gun, though that information was not relayed to responding officers. The incident, which was caught on tape, revealed that within two seconds, officers fired at Rice, who died at a hospital the following day.

In the year since his passing, Rice’s death has been ruled a homicide, as reports conclude that reasonable force was used by officers Timothy Loehman, who fired the gun and his partner, Frank Gamback.
