Investigators seek video of Cleveland police chase

CLEVELAND (AP) - Authorities investigating a Cleveland car chase that ended with a barrage of police gunfire and two deaths are seeking help from businesses along the chase route.

Attorney General Mike DeWine's office is leading the investigation. He asked businesses Monday to provide any security video that might show the chase.

The 25-minute, 22-mile chase last month began when an officer heard what he thought was a shot fired outside police headquarters. No weapon or shells were found in the fleeing car.

Officers fired 137 shots. The passenger was shot 24 times, and the driver 23 times.

Their deaths upset some members of the community who compare the gunfire to an execution.

Police said use of force was justified because the driver rammed a cruiser and nearly hit an officer.
