Procedures are key in deadly Cleveland shooting



Published: Mon, December 3, 2012 @ 3:10 p.m.

CLEVELAND (AP) — Cleveland’s mayor says he will back police in the shooting deaths of two people during a chase if procedures were followed, but there will be consequences if they weren’t.

The comments today from Mayor Frank Jackson came as city hall dealt with the fallout from Thursday night’s shooting barrage of 137 bullets with 13 officers involved.

No weapon or shell casings were found in the vehicle in which two people fled downtown Cleveland after an officer heard a gunshot near police headquarters.

The medical examiner said today that the victims were tested for gunpowder residue, which could indicate if they fired a weapon and tossed it. Results on the gunpowder residue tests could take weeks.

Officers say the driver rammed a patrol car and nearly hit an officer.
