The family of a 12-year-old Cleveland boy who was fatally shot by police filed a federal civil rights and wrongful death lawsuit on Friday against the city and the police officers involved.
Tamir Rice was shot last month while carrying what turned out to be a replica gun that typically fires plastic pellets. The shooting came at a time of heightened national scrutiny of police use of force, especially against African-Americans.
The suit names both Timothy Loehmann, the officer who shot Rice on Nov. 22 less than two seconds after the police car pulled up beside the boy at a park, and Frank Garmback, who was driving the car.
The suit said that the officers confronted Rice, "in a surprise fashion and fired multiple shots at him without any adequate investigation." The suit said that Rice lay on the ground alive for four minutes without medical care. Read in Entirety
