The Incident and Lawsuit
In November 2012, an unfortunate incident occurred in Cleveland involving a high-speed police chase initiated by officers who believed the vehicle occupants, Timothy Russell and Malissa Williams, were armed and involved in criminal activity. The chase ended tragically with the officers firing 137 shots at the vehicle, resulting in the deaths of Russell and Williams.
Following this incident, the families of Russell and Williams filed a federal lawsuit against the city of Cleveland, alleging excessive use of force, police misconduct, and violations of their loved ones' civil rights. The lawsuit sought justice, accountability, and compensation for the loss and suffering endured by the families.
