CLEVELAND (AP) — Cleveland police are ready to share results of disciplinary hearings for dozens of patrol officers involved in a deadly chase last November.
A review found 75 patrol officers violated orders and department rules during the 23-minute pursuit, which wove through a residential neighborhood before ending in gunfire. The fleeing driver and passenger were killed when officers fired 137 shots.
Chief Michael McGrath planned to announce the outcome of the officers' disciplinary hearings Tuesday. The violations ranged from insubordination to failure to obtain permission to leave the city.
Police previously announced punishments for 12 supervisors stemming from the chase. One sergeant was fired. A captain and lieutenant were demoted, and nine sergeants were suspended.
The department subsequently decided to ban officers from firing at or from moving vehicles in most cases.
