Tamir Rice 911 call-taker has disciplinary hearing

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- A disciplinary hearing was held Friday for the 911 dispatcher who took the initial call that set off a chain of events that led a Cleveland police officer shooting 12-year-old Tamir Rice, city officials said. 

Constance Hollinger faces up to 10 days suspension without pay. Cleveland police Chief Calvin Williams has not rendered a decision in the case, and there is no deadline for his decision.

The hearing came more than two years after the Nov. 22, 2014 shooting that led to Tamir's death. 

Hollinger failed to give the other dispatcher pertinent information regarding the call she got regarding Tamir, according to the disciplinary charges sent to her Jan. 26.

The caller told Hollinger that the suspect was "probably a juvenile" and that the gun he had was "probably fake," according to the charges. Hollinger never relayed that information to dispatcher Beth Mandl, who later resigned.

Mandl then told officers to investigate someone with a gun scaring people outside Cudell Recreation Center. Tamir had an airsoft pellet gun. 

Hollinger is the fourth person to be given disciplinary charges in the case.

Timothy Loehmann, who fired the shot that killed Tamir, and Frank Garmback, who drove Loehmann to the recreation center, were both handed disciplinary charges in December. A third officer, William Cunningham, was also sent a pre-disciplinary letter.
