OVERKILL: 63 Cleveland Cops Suspended After An Unarmed Couple Was Shot At 137 Times

Cleveland officials are suspending 63 police officers for their roles in a November car chase that ended in the shooting deaths of an unarmed man and woman, The Plain Dealer reports.

Cleveland Police Chief Michael McGrath said the officers violated police protocol during the chase, according to the newspaper.

Officers’ offenses include engaging in a chase without permission and providing false information on police reports, the Plain Dealer reports. The officers will be suspended temporarily, with no one officer being suspended for more than 10 days.

Police officials have not yet reviewed the 13 officers who were involved in the shooting itself, but that’s coming in the next and final stage of the investigation, officials told The Plain Dealer. More than 100 officers had some involvement in the chase.
