Cleveland police say two officers are on leave, and an investigation is underway after a policeman shot and killed a 12-year-old boy at a city park over the weekend. Police say the boy had been reaching for what appeared to be a handgun, and turned out to be a replica that fires plastic pellets.

The city's mayor and police chief answered questions about the case today at a crowded press conference. Ideastream's Nick Castele was there, and he spoke to Tony Ganzer. We hear first from police chief Calvin Williams.
