City of Cleveland Seeks Outside Help For Tamir Rice Investigation

The city of Cleveland is asking for some outside help into a major case.

Many people are seeking outside sources to investigate the murder of Tamir Rice, who was killed by Cleveland police after he was sitting on a park bench and was playing with a toy BB gun. City Safety Director Michael McGrath has been talking with the Cuyahoga County officials for the sheriff’s office to handle the case.

According to the Associated Press, the person leading the investigation must present the information to the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor in order for there to be possible charges:

Incoming Cuyahoga County Executive Armond Budish has participated in multiple meetings between Cleveland and sheriff’s officials since the shooting, said Dennis Williard, a spokesman for Budish’s transition team.

Whoever leads the investigation will give its evidence to Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Timothy McGinty, whose office will present the case to a grand jury for possible criminal charges.

As of right now, the Cleveland Police Department are still investigating the shooting.
