NAACP seeks grand jury documents

CLEVELAND (AP) — The local NAACP wants to see documents from the grand jury that decided not to indict two Cleveland police officers in the fatal shooting of Tamir Rice, a 12-year-old black boy who had a pellet gun.

Members of the Cleveland NAACP are seeking transcripts of witness testimony before the grand jury that heard evidence in the 2014 shooting.

They say they want to see and analyze everything that grand jurors heard in the case.

Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Tim McGinty has said he doesn’t have the authority to release the transcripts.
