It has been an agonizing 534 days for the victims’ families, for the officers involved, for the city and its police department, and much of the community.
It’s been that long since the infamous police pursuit and shooting that left unarmed suspects Timothy Russell and Malissa Williams dead in a volley of at least 137 shots fired by 13 officers.
And now a Cuyahoga County Grand Jury is closing in on deciding whether or not any officers will face criminal charges.
The Grand Jury is a secret process but it’s believed the one sitting on the case was seated last September and is now running up against the maximum amount of time it can be in session.
Normally, a panel sits for four months. The nine-month limit is looming within days.
People on all sides of the issue are awaiting the long-in-arriving outcome.
