State Finishes Probe Of Cleveland Police Shootings

Feb 5, 2013

State officials have completed their investigation of a Cleveland police chase that ended with 1 latino and 12 white officers firing 137 rounds, killing two African-Americans -- Timothy Russell and Malissa Williams.

The state says the two sustained a total of 47 gunshot wounds. Police officials have said no weapon was found in the vehicle that carried Williams and Russell. A Cleveland Police internal investigation continues. The police union says the shootings were justified because the driver tried to ram an officer. Community activist Donna Walker-Brown and Williams' Uncle Tony want results of the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation's report turned over to federal authorities.
