Ambulance bill for family of police shooting victim Tamir Rice, 12

A 12-year-old boy's estate has been asked to pay 500 US dollars (£346) for ambulance and medical services he received after being shot by a police officer in Ohio.
The city of Cleveland requested the money as Tamir Rice's "last dying expense" in a creditor's claim filed in Cuyahoga County Probate Court. The claim states the money is overdue.
A family lawyer called the claim "callous and insensitive".
Tamir, who was black, was shot by a white officer while playing with a pellet gun outside a recreation centre in November 2014.
A grand jury in December declined to indict the officer or his partner over the shooting.
A Cleveland police union president called the city's claim "unconscionable".
