Tamir Rice shooting was 'reasonable,'


The police shooting death of a 12-year-old Cleveland boy with a pellet gun was reasonable, two experts say in reports prepared for the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor.
Tamir Rice was killed by an officer in training outside a Cleveland recreation center in November 2014.

The shooting sparked controversy given Tamir's age and the fact that he had a gun that resembled a handgun but fired pellets.

It also came as the nation reeled from police-involved shootings of unarmed African-American men. Tamir was black.

Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Timothy J. McGinty said a grand jury will decide whether Officer Timothy Loehmann and his partner, Frank Garmback, will face charges.

The two reports, as well as a third one by the Highway Patrol, were posted on the prosecutor's website Saturday night.
