Disciplinary hearings for several Cleveland City patrol officers involved in theNovember 29 chase and police-involved shooting will begin Tuesday.
Over 50 officers are scheduled to have their hearings in front of Cleveland Police Chief Michael McGrath. The chief will hold about 10 hearings a day, until they are all completed, according to Police Union President Jeff Follmer.
If the officers are found guilty of the charges, they could face up to 10 days off without pay.
Follmer said he believes the officers’ actions were justified.
The pursuit happened around 10:30 p.m. on November 29 when an officer outside the Justice Center said someone in the suspects’ car fired a shot at him.
Dozens of Cleveland police officers chased the car for more than 22 minutes. The chase ended in East Cleveland when 13 officers fired 137 shots at the two suspects.
The suspects, Timothy Russell and Malissa Williams, died. No weapon was found in their car.
