Police bosses charged over 2012 shooting in black Cleveland suburb


Five white Cleveland police supervisors accused of failing to stop a chase that ended with a 137-shot barrage of police gunfire and the deaths of two black suspects were charged Thursday with misdemeanors in the predominantly black suburb where the shooting occurred.

The officers supervisors charged are Michael Donegan, 44 of Cleveland, Patricia Coleman, 50 of Brooklyn, Randolph Dailey, 46 of North Ridgeville, Jason Edens, 44 of Avon, and Paul Wilson, 51 of Cleveland

East Cleveland Prosecutor Willa Hemmons said they are the same dereliction of duty charges that a county grand jury indicted the supervisors on in May 2014, to which they all pled not guilty. The supervisors are scheduled to go on trial July 27 before the same judge who acquitted a white officer on manslaughter charges in the Nov. 29, 2012, deaths of Timothy Russell and Malissa Williams.
