Cleveland Police Chief Michael McGrath says one police supervisor will be fired and two others demoted for their actions during a deadly police chase and shooting last November.
In addition, nine other supervisors face suspensions ranging from one day to 30 days.
The chase in November 2012 ended with the deaths of Timothy Russell and Malissa Williams. The two died after police opened fire on their car firing 137 shots. The two were not armed.
Chief McGrath says the city will now turn its attention to reviewing the 104 patrol officers involved in the chase to determine if departmental procedures were followed.
Chief McGrath says the review of the officers will begin next month.
The city will not review the officers involved in the shooting until Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Tim McGinty completes the criminal review.
Mayor Frank Jackson said “This is not a pleasant moment … but it’s a necessary moment,” in referring to the city’s disciplining of the supervisors.
