Tamir Rice, 12-year-old shot by Cleveland police for playing with a toy gun has died.

This is a sad and unfortunate story. Cleveland police fatally shot 12-year-old Tamir Rice on Saturday, after they responded to a 911 call about a boy playing with a toy gun. Rice died early Sunday morning at MetroHealth Medical Center.

According to Cleveland deputy police Chief Ed Tomba, Rice was shot twice after pulling the gun from the waistband of his pants.

“The boy did not make any verbal threats nor point the gun towards the officers,” said Chief Tomba added.

Chief Tomba also added that the weapon was an "airsoft" replica gun that resembled a semi-automatic pistol.

The two officers involved have been placed on administrative leave, pending an investigation.
