CLEVELAND – Family members of a 12-year-old black boy who was carrying a pellet gun when he was shot and killed by a white police officer have gathered for a vigil in Cleveland one year later.
People prayed and observed a moment of silence on Sunday at the Cudell Recreation Center area where Tamir Rice was shot a year ago.
Some 60 people, including his mother and sister, also took part in a commemoration there on Saturday.
A grand jury is hearing testimony about the shooting. Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH'-guh) County Prosecutor Tim McGinty says he hasn't reached any conclusions about charges.
Congresswoman Marcia Fudge says the community awaits answers. The Cleveland Democrat issued a statement Sunday saying the case has taken "far too long."
