Cuyahoga County officials released the following statement Wednesday afternoon:
Today, Cuyahoga County Sheriff Clifford Pinkney transmitted the findings of the investigation into the death of Tamir Rice to the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor. The County Sheriff’s Office performed the investigation at the request of the City of Cleveland. The Sheriff’s Office received the file on February 13, and has performed an extensive, thorough and unbiased investigation. It is now up to the Prosecutor to determine how next to proceed.
