UNION SQUARE, Manhattan  — Protesters marched in Union Square Sunday morning for the one year anniversary of the death of Tamir Rice, 12, who was shot and killed by a police officer.

The rally began in Union Square before a Children's March for Tamir Rice to Madison Square Park.

Rice was shot by a Cleveland police officer who authorities say mistook the child's air gun for a real firearm.

A grand jury is hearing testimony about the shooting. Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Tim McGinty says he hasn't reached any conclusions about charges.Congresswoman Marcia Fudge says the community awaits answers. The Cleveland Democrat issued a statement Sunday saying the case has taken "far too long."

Demonstrations are being held around the country including Baltimore, Chicago and Los Angeles for Rice.
