In the case of Tamr Rice, he was playing with a toy gun in a park when Loehmann pulled up in a squad car and gunned the boy down without warning.
The entire incident was captured on surveillance footage and caused national outrage.
The completion of the investigation has come one week after an agreement between the city of Cleveland and the U.S. Justice Department about changes in police policy concerning use of force and policing communities of color.
