CLEVELAND-- The Cleveland NAACP is asking for grand jury documents in the Tamir Rice case. 

They want transcripts of witness testimony before the grand jury. Last Monday, it was announced that the grand jury decided not to indict two Cleveland police officers in the 2014 death of the 12-year-old boy.

Members of the Cleveland Branch of the NAACP are not satisfied with what's been made public so far. They want a chance to look at and analyze everything that grand jury members heard. Tuesday night, they voted to push for the release of those documents.

"We understand that that would not include the name of the jurors; we know that`s not proper, and that's not something we are asking for disclosure, but we are asking for the general transcript of the witness testimony-- the cost-- how much was spent on the actual expert witnesses. He had several witnesses until he got what he we want to know how much that cost," said Cleveland NAACP President Michael Nelson.

Prosecutor Tim McGinty has said he doesn't have the authority to release the transcripts, so the decision may be up to the courts.
