CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton Monday tweeted a message of support to the family and friends of Tamir Rice, the 12-year-old who was shot and killed by police last November.

Rice was shot and killed by a Cleveland police officer Nov. 22, 2014, in the playground area of the Cudell Recreation Center. Officers were responding to a report of a male with a gun and fired. They later learned Rice's gun was airsoft.

Reports compiled by expert witnesses reviewing the shooting were released on Saturday. The witnesses concluded that the officer's use of deadly force "falls within the realm of reasonableness."

The expert reviews will not determine if there are any charges filed. Prosecutor Tim McGinty has said that use of force cases that result in death will all go to grand juries for decision on whether charges will be filed.
