CLEVELAND - As the Fox 8 I-Team first reported last month, BCI agents and Cuyahoga County Sheriff officials are back at the Cudell Recreation Center, where 12-year-old Tamir Rice was shot by police in November.Investigators with the state are performing a 360 scan of the area. The scan will be used as part of the investigation into the shooting.

"Our cautious optimism has been tested by our patience," said Walter Madison, an attorney representing Tamir Rice's family. "And while we are appreciative of the efforts, it is difficult to understand why the re-creation is necessary while they have the actual video. And even if necessary it does not appear the weather was a hindrance before. It's only expected to be in the high 40s today, so why couldn't this have been done sooner? "

The sheriff's department is investigating the police involved shooting of the 12-year-old.

Cleveland police responded to the scene after a 911 caller reported there was a male there with a gun. Police say when they got there they ordered Tamir to put his hands in the air but he reached for his waistband.

Tamir had an airsoft pistol that police say looked like a real gun.
