Tamir Rice shooting report released

(CNN) – We’re learning new information about the police shooting that left a Cleveland boy dead last year.

The Cuyahoga county sheriff’s department released an investigative report Saturday into the death of 12-year-old Tamir Rice.

You’ll recall, Rice was holding a pellet gun when a police officer shot him within seconds of pulling up to the scene.

The new report found it is unclear if the officer shouted warnings at the boy before shooting.

Police said the officer did, but witness interviews don’t back that up, according to the report.

The report also found that officers and emergency responders believed Rice was older than 12 and believed the gun he was holding was real.

The report did not say if investigators believed the shooting was justified.

The release comes just days after a judge determined there was enough evidence in the case to charge the officers involved in Rice’s shooting. But it will be up to a grand jury to decide if charges should be pressed.
