Recommended Posts

The City of Cleveland has fired Timothy Loehmann, the police officer who shot and killed 12-year old Tamir Rice in 2014, the New York Times reported.

 

The city also suspended a second officer who was involved in the shooting, patrol car driver Frank Garmback, for 10 days beginning Wednesday.

The city announced in January that Loehmann, Garmback and a third officer involved in the shooting would face administrative penalties.

 

Rice was playing with a toy gun outside a recreation center in Cleveland when, footage shows, Garmback and Loehmann’s patrol car pulled up and Loehmann almost immediately opened fire on Rice.

 

 

The shooting was one of several killings of unarmed black men to trigger protests and public outrage.
