A 12-year-old boy shot to death by Cleveland police last year had his hands in his pockets when he was shot and wasn't reaching for the pellet gun he carried, according to an expert's review of a new video analysis of the shooting.
Tamir Rice did not have time to remove his hands from his pockets before being shot, according to the analysis released late Friday by attorneys for Tamir's family. The report and two others are the latest analyses of evidence to be released as a grand jury considers whether to bring charges in Tamir's death. The boy was shot after authorities received a report of a man pointing and waving a gun in November 2014.
Previous reports concluded that Officer Timothy Loehmann shot Tamir within two seconds of opening his car door. The new analysis determined it happened even faster, according to the review by California-based shooting reconstruction expert Jesse Wobrock. - AP
