Tamir Rice's family hired an expert who has a new finding after analyzing the 2014 footage of Cleveland police shooting the 12-year-old.By Jamal Andress | December 6, 2015
A shooting reconstruction expert hired by Tamir Rice's family alleges when Tamir was shot, he had his hands in his pockets and was not reaching for the toy gun he was carrying.
It's been more than a year since 12-year-old Tamir Rice was shot and killed by police in Cleveland, but his family and the officers involved still don't know if charges will be filed.
Timothy McGinty, the county prosecutor who usually would decide if an officer will face charges, has tapped a grand jury to make that decision in this case. The grand jury began hearing testimony in Tamir's case in October.
