CLEVELAND, Ohio -- The public viewing of Tamir Rice, the 12-year-old shot and killed by a Cleveland police officer a week ago, is Sunday from noon to 7 p.m.

The viewing will be at the Gaines Funeral Home, 9116 Union Ave. Tamir's funeral service is Wednesday at 11 a.m. at Mt. Sinai Baptist Church, 7510  Woodland Ave.

Tamir was shot last Saturday afternoon outside Cudell Recreation Center by a rookie policeman, who apparently thought Tamir had a real weapon with him and not a toy gun. The child died in a hospital Sunday morning.

Tamir's death has sparked community demonstrations against the shooting as well as public meetings to talk about gun violence and police relations.
Tamir was a sixth-grader at Marion C. Seltzer Elementary School in Cleveland.
