Police cases over 137-shot barrage unsettled 5 years later

FILE – In this Nov. 30, 2012, file forensics photo released by the Office of the Ohio Attorney General, bullet trajectories are marked on a Chevy Malibu riddled with gunshots after a high-speed chase that ended in the deaths of two unarmed suspects in Cleveland. Nearly five years after two unarmed black suspects died in a 137-shot barrage of Cleveland police gunfire, five officers fired for their roles are set to return to duty this week after an arbitrator reinstated their jobs. Meanwhile, discipline and criminal charges against some officers involved in the case remain unsettled, lingering in what a union leader and a defense attorney describe as an unfair limbo.
