Officer in Tamir Rice shooting: 'He gave me no choice'

“He gave me no choice. He reached for the gun and there was nothing I could do,” Cleveland police Officer Timothy Loehmann told a fellow officer in the moments after he shot Tamir at a gazebo outside the a recreation center on Nov. 22.

The officer’s words — released Saturday in a 224-page report from Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Tim McGinty — mark the first time the Loehmann’s account of the shooting was revealed.

The report also notes that Loehmann and his partner each refused to be interviewed by sheriff’s investigators.
