CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson and Police Chief Calvin Williams will hold a press conference this afternoon to talk about this week's events regarding the Tamir Rice case.

It was announced Monday that a grand jury decided the officers will not face criminal charges in connection with the Nov. 22, 2014 shooting death of 12-year-old Tamir Rice.
Rice was shot and killed at Cudell Recreation Center in Cleveland after a 911 caller reported a male in the area waving a gun. The officers say they believed the gun was real when they arrived on scene. They said they ordered Rice to drop the weapon before Loehmann fired.
It turns out that Rice had an airsoft pistol that police say looked like a real gun.
Protesters have taken to the streets of downtown Cleveland the last three nights to protest the grand jury's decision. Another protest has been scheduled for tonight.
