Cleveland police cars chase two unarmed Blacks from downtown Cleveland to neighboring East Cleveland the night of Nov . 29 , 2012. The 23 minute car chase ended in the parking lot of Heritage Middle School in East Cleveland and culminated in 13 non- Black Cleveland police officers firing a total of 137 bullets at Malissa Williams 30, and Timothy Ray Russell, 43, the driver of the 1979 Chevy Malibu. Both Russell and Williams were Black, and both died at the scene. On Friday, a Cuyahoga County Grand Jury indicted one of the 13 cops, Micahel Brelo, who jumped aboard the hood of Russell's car and fired 49 shots through the front windshield while the other 12 went free, though five police supervisors were charged with misdemeanor dereliction of duty. Brelo has been charged with two counts of voluntary manslaughter.
