CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

19 Action News has learned how many officers could face discipline for the deadly police chase from November.

Sources tell 19 Action News as many as 100 police officers may have violated the pursuit policy, plus six supervisors. Additionally, 69 officers may have violated the emergency response pursuit driving policy, plus five supervisors.

Around 100 officers make up more than one-third of the officers on duty that night.

On November 29, more than 60 police cars chased a man and a woman in a car after a report of shots fired. They wouldn't stop. The chase went on for 22 minutes, and it ended with police killing the driver and passenger with 137 shots.

Weeks ago, State Attorney General Mike DeWine said more than 60 Cleveland police cars took part in the chase, most without permission. He also blamed a systemic failure in the police department - poor training and supervision.

The city will not announce discipline for the officers at this afternoon's news conference. Any internal discipline will just now be initiated.

The Cuyahoga County Prosecutor is reviewing the police shooting at the end of the chase for any possible criminal charges.
