No charges against officer who killed 12-year-old Tamir Rice

Officer Timothy Loehmann will not face charges for killing 12-year-old Tamir Rice. Assistant Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Matthew Meyer made the announcement on Monday afternoon more than 400 days after Rice was killed for holding an airsoft gun. “The outcome will not cheer anyone, nor should it,” Mr McGinty said before calling the fatal shooting a “perfect storm of human error.” Officer Loehmann’s partner 46-year-old Frank Garmback will not face charges for his role in the shooting.
