NEW YORK-- Protesters in New York expressed their disappointment with a Cuyahoga County grand jury's decision not to indict two officers involved in the shooting death of Tamir Rice.

Hundreds of demonstrators gathered in Washington Square Park in Manhattan and marched across the Brooklyn Bridge. The group was accompanied by a heavy police presence.


Locally, about a dozen people started at the Cudell Recreation Center and walked the streets on Cleveland's west side.

On Monday, the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor's Office announced the grand jury did not indict Officers Timothy Loehmann and Frank Garmback.

The two Cleveland officers responded to a report of a male with a gun at the rec center on Nov. 22, 2014. According to prosecutors, the officers believed they were responding to an active shooter situation when Loehmann shot Rice. Police later learned his weapon was airsoft.
