RAW: Tamir Rice's paternal grandmother, attorney speak

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - 12-year-old Tamir Rice's grandmother and his father's attorney opened up Monday about a recent report released by the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor's Office.

Mildretta Warner-Davis and Walter Madison spoke with CBS News about the shooting and the report that was released over the weekend.

The report cites experts who analyzed the shooting death of Tamir by a Cleveland police officer on November 22, 2014.


The experts' findings state that the officer's use of force was "reasonable" considering what police knew about the situation they were faced with. The officers observed what a 911 caller had described: Someone with a gun outside the Cudell Rec Center who appeared to be reaching down his right side to pick up his jacket. According to one of the experts, the fact that Tamir was only 12, and that the toy gun was missing its colored tip is unfortunate, but does not mean the officer did anything wrong.
