CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - The gazebo where 12-year-old Tamir Rice was shot and killed by Cleveland police will go on display soon in Chicago as part of an art installation.
The gazebo, which served as a makeshift memorial since Tamir's death, was torn down from the Cuddell Recreation Center in Cleveland in Sept. 2016.
Tamir was shot and killed in Nov. 2014 after Cleveland cops Timothy Loehmann and Frank Garmback responded to a 911 call about a "guy" with a gun. The officers shot and killed Tamir, and later discovered that it was an air-soft gun that Tamir was in possession of.
Tamir's mother, Samaria, recently spoke at the art gallery in Chicago. She explained why and how the gazebo came to Chicago.
