CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

The gazebo where Tamir Rice, 12, was shot by Cleveland police November 2014 will be torn down as early as Monday. 

The city released a statement Friday, saying it had considered disassembling the gazebo at the rec center previously, "but due to criminal, civil and administrative cases, we could not proceed until it was no longer needed for evidential purposes."

A grand jury decided on Dec. 28, 2015 not to indict the two officers involved in the shooting, Timothy Loehmann and Frank Garmback. Cuyahoga County prosecutor Tim McGinty said the evidence did not warrant criminal charges. 

On Nov. 22, 2014, Tamir was fatally shot by a Cleveland police officer after a report of a male with a gun outside of a Cleveland recreation center. Officers Loehmann and Garmback responded to the scene. Loehmann fired the shot that killed the 12-year-old. 

The city settled this week with the Rice family for $6 million dollars.
