CLEVELAND - A spokesman for the U.S. attorney's office says an independent civil rights investigation is continuing in the Tamir Rice case.

Michael Tobin says the federal probe is ongoing despite a Cuyahoga County grand jury on Monday declining to indict the officer who fatally shot 12-year-old Tamir on Nov. 22, 2014.

Officer Timothy Loehmann shot Tamir within seconds of emerging from a cruiser because the officer thought the boy was drawing a gun from his waistband. It turned out to be a pellet gun. 

Tobin says the U.S. Department of Justice also is continuing to pursue reforms of the police department dictated by a consent decree with the city.
