CLEVELAND- Police caught a 13-year-old boy at a Cleveland park with a BB gun in his waistband on Saturday, in a case that mirrored the Tamir Rice incident except with a very different outcome.

The call came in at 7:15 p.m. at Mohican Park on Triskett Road. A report shows the caller did not know if the gun was real or fake.

Last November, police got a similar call to the Cudell Recreaction Center. A dispatcher never told the officers responding the gun may be a fake. They pulled up, and in less than two seconds, shot 12-year-old Tamir Rice, saying the boy was reaching into his waistband and had ignored commands. Rice died the next day and the gun was airsoft.

On Saturday, police said a dispatcher radioed the gun may be fake. Police saw a 13-year-old matching the description riding a bike in the middle of the park.

Police said they approached the boy and said, “Without reaching for it, do you have a gun on you?”

The report shows the boy answered, “Yes, it’s in my waistband. But it’s just a BB gun.”

Police took the boy home to his parents. They say the boy told them he was carrying the gun for his own protection because he did not want anyone stealing his bike. Police said the father told them he bought the gun for his son and he thought it was OK to play with it because it had an orange tip.

Officers referred the case to first district investigators.

The Rice case is under review by the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s Office to determine if any criminal charges should be filed against the officers involved.
