Cleveland Police Officer Fatally Shoots 12-Year-Old Boy Holding BB Gun!
Tamir Rice was killed on Saturday as he walked around a Cleveland park brandishing a pellet gun that police said was indistinguishable from a real firearm. An onlooker called 911 and said there was a man with a weapon but cautioned the dispatcher that it was "probably fake". That message was not conveyed to Officers Timothy Loehman, 26, and Frank Garmback, 46, who rushed to the Cudell Recreation Center thinking they were confronting an armed man. Security camera footage shows their squad car driving over grass up to the gazebo where Tamir was standing and had been pointing the toy gun Via CNN.
