CLEVELAND-- The dismantling of the gazebo at the Cudell Recreation Center, where Tamir Rice was shot, began on Wednesday morning.

Cleveland City Councilman Matt Zone said the structure will be taken to a Chicago museum, rebuilt and put on display. The museum is expected to display the gazebo along with items related to other deadly police-involved shootings.

FOX 8's Stacey Frey reported that a memorial will go up in its place.

In November 2014, 12-year-old Tamir Rice was shot and killed by police when two Cleveland officers responded to a 911 call of a man waving a gun near the gazebo. The gun turned out to be a real-looking air soft pistol.
