CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

The Cleveland Police Patrolmen's Association have announced they want Cleveland Police Chief Michael McGrath to resign.

This was announced at a news conference Wednesday, when the union responded to the Attorney General's report on the November 29, 2012 police chase and shooting. 

Timothy Russell and Malissa Williams died after being shot multiple times after the chase.

The union president says they no longer have confidence in Chief McGrath's ability to lead and that morale is at an all time low.

The union president also said supervisors and officers have already been told they would face possible termination before any hearing. The union president added the officers should be commended for their actions.

Chief McGrath talked to reporters at city hall Wednesday, saying he is not concerned about the union's news conferences and believes most officers, in their heart, do the job to protect and serve.
