New Video Of Tamir Rice Shooting Shows Police Arresting Sister, Delaying First Aid

Previously unreleased surveillance footage surrounding the police shooting of a boy in Cleveland shows authorities forcing the young victim's 14-year-old sister to the ground, handcuffing her and putting her in a patrol car.

The video, obtained by the Northeast Ohio Media Group and released on Wednesday, also indicates that Cleveland Police waited four minutes before administering first aid to the dying 12-year-old boy, Tamir Rice.

Rice's sister ran towards him after she heard gunfire, the Associated Press reports.

Earlier video showed that police shot Rice two seconds after arriving on the scene on Nov. 22. They mistook Rice's pellet gun for a real one.

Last month, Rice's family filed a lawsuit against the Cleveland Police Department in connection with the shooting.

Prosecutors have said a grand jury will decide if the officers involved in the incident will face charges.
