It was announced Monday that a grand jury decided officers Timothy Loehmann and Frank Garmback will not face criminal charges in connection with the Nov. 22, 2014 shooting death of the 12-year-old.
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.
Prosecutors said Monday that while the whole ordeal was a "perfect storm of human error," it was not a crime.
Now, an administrative hearing will now be held to determine if the officers violated any departmental policies during the shooting of the 12-year-old.
Loehmann and Garmback will remain on restricted duty until the review is complete.
It could take time before the officers are actually disciplined. The officers involved in the shooting of two unarmed suspects in 2012 are still waiting to find out their discipline.
Police Chief Calvin Williams said a committee will get to work and look at all evidence and testimony in the Tamir Rice case and forward a recommendation to his office.
Meanwhile, city police were ready for protests in Cleveland overnight with many officers on overtime and carrying riot gear in case it got violent. But there were no arrests and it remained peaceful.
Puncture the Silence has scheduled a protest for 3 p.m. Tuesday at the Justice Center on Lakeside and Ontario.
