CLEVELAND, Ohio (Cleveland.com)—Dozens of people are gathering outside the Cudell Recreation Center to protest the police shooting of 12-year-old Tamir Rice.

One longtime neighborhood resident, Ruth Standiford, said she came out to protest because she believes there are many unanswered questions surrounding Rice’s shooting.
