A judge in Ohio said he found cause to charge a police officer with murder for the shooting and killing 12-year-old Tamir Rice last year.
On Thursday, Judge Ronald Adrine of the Cleveland municipal court said there were grounds to prosecute officer Timothy Loehmann with murder, manslaughter and reckless homicide.
Adrine also said Loehmann's partner could be charged with negligent homicide. Officer Frank Garmback was present when Tamir was shot at a park on November 22 while holding a pellet gun.
In a 10-page ruling, Adrine wrote that after looking at surveillance video he was quote “still thunderstruck by how quickly this event turned deadly”. The video shows Tamir being shot dead within two seconds of Loehmann’s arrival. Civil rights leaders added their voices against police brutality.
