CLEVELAND-– The officers involved in the Tamir Rice shooting gave statements to Cuyahoga County Sheriff’s detectives that were read to a grand jury in lieu of their testimony.

Henry Hilow, who represents Officers Frank Garmback and Timothy Loehmann, told FOX 8 the statements were made late Monday afternoon.

The grand jury has been hearing the case since late October.

On Monday, Tamir’s mother and two of his siblings testified in front of the grand jury.

It will be up to the grand jury to determine if the officers should be indicted.

Tamir Rice was shot by Officer Timothy Loehmann Nov. 22, 2014 in the playground area of the Cudell Recreation Center.  Police thought the gun Rice was handling was real.  It was an airsoft pistol that police say looked like a real gun.
