Tamir Rice's death has been ruled a homicide. The 12-year-old boy, who was killed by a Cleveland police officer last month, "died as a result of a gunshot wound to the abdomen which injured his inferior vena cava, intestines, and pelvis," according to the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner.

On November 22, Officer Tim Loehmann shot Rice in the stomach at a Cleveland park just two seconds after Loehmann and his partner arrived on the scene. Rice, who was holding a BB gun at the time of the shooting, died the next day in a Cleveland hospital.

Rice's family has since filed a wrongful death suit against the Cleveland Police Department, which hired Loehmann two years after another Ohio police department found him unfit for duty.
