Tamir Rice shooting: 2 years later

Tamir Rice: 2 years later

CLEVELAND -- Nov. 22, 2014.

That's the date 12-year-old Tamir Rice was killed outside the Cudell Recreation Center in Cleveland.

Tuesday marks two years since the incident.

Activists and supporters demonstrated outside of the First District Police Headquarters on W. 130th Street for 12 hours, each year of Rice's life.

Black Lives Matter, Cleveland posted the event on Facebook.

Tamir's mother, Samaria Rice, gave a statement at 5 p.m. She's demanding justice and a meeting with Attorney General Loretta Lynch.  WKYC Channel 3' s Carly Flynn Morgan was there and captured Rice's speech on Facebook Live. 

A grand jury chose not to indict the two Cleveland police officers involved. Rice had what was later learned to be an air soft gun.
