Toxicology results show there were no drugs in his system.

Tamir was shot and killed by police last month when officers responded to a 911 call that somebody was walking outside the Cudell Recreation Center. Listen to that 911 call HERE.

Police say the weapon Tamir was holding, which was an "airsoft" gun, was indistinguishable from a deadly firearm. Authorities also say Tamir did not follow orders to put his hands up.
