December 4, 2012
Police in Cleveland and East Cleveland are facing a barrage of criticism after a chase last week ended with at least 13 officers firing 137 rounds into a vehicle they believed contained armed suspects; however, once the smoke cleared and they were able to investigate the bullet-riddled ride police found no gun.
The onslaught of police gunfire last Thursday left two unarmed civilians, Timothy Russell, 43, and Malissa Williams, 30, dead at the scene.
