A 12-year-old boy has been shot dead by police after waving a replica gun in a playground.

Tamir Rice was gunned down by officers after being seen holding what appeared to be a pistol, but which a 911 caller had described to police as being ‘probably fake.’

Tamir, who was black, was shot in the abdomen by a city officer at a playground on the west side of Cleveland, Ohio, on Saturday, said Timothy Kucharski, an attorney for the boy’s family.

The shooting comes three months after another black youngster, 18-year-old Michael Brown, was shot dead by police in Ferguson Missouri.
