CLEVELAND, Ohio – A mother whose son was shot and killed by police in 2014 announced her plans to open a youth center in his honor.
Tamir Rice was killed while holding a toy gun in a park.
Samaria Rice plans to open a youth center in hopes that what happened to her son will not happen to others.
"We have a lot of talented children in the city of Cleveland, and they don't have any after school programs and their talented and I just want to be able to enhance their talents." Rice said.
Her Cleveland youth center will include performing arts activities like plays and playing instruments.
The Rice family’s settlement was $6 million in a Wrongful Death lawsuit. Some of that money will be used to fund the center.
