Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson and Police Chief Michael McGrath held a news conference Monday to provide the latest information into a deadly police shooting investigation that left two dead.

Timothy Russell and Malissa Williams died after cops fired 137 shots at their car after a police chase from Cleveland to East Cleveland.

Mayor Jackson said the East Cleveland Police Department will be handling the investigation. The City of Cleveland will fully cooperate. The investigation will take some time to complete, and the Mayor urged the community to be patient.

There had been some confusion right after the shooting happened, as to whom would handle it because the incident started in Cleveland and ended in East Cleveland.

19 Action News has obtained dash cam video from a Bratenahl police cruiser. The dash cam video is blurry, but gunshots can be heard clearly.

The incident began around 10 p.m. Thursday on West St. Clair Ave. near the Justice Center in downtown Cleveland.  According to a Cleveland officer, someone inside a vehicle that drove past appeared to have fired a gunshot at or in the vicinity of the officer.

Police say the driver of the vehicle refused to stop, and police pursued the vehicle.

Sources tell 19 Action News a shell casing was found along the path of the chase.

Sunday night, Cleveland officers walked along the high-speed lane of the Shoreway between Dead Man's Curve and East 55th, and they said they'd found a casing.

But no gun was found with the suspects, and it's not clear if the new evidence is in any way connected.

The 13 officers involved will undergo internal interviews.
