CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

Outrage and demands for justice, after a police investigation found Cleveland officers, did not follow protocol, during this deadly police chase.

A community group gathered on the steps of Cleveland City Hall counting the number of times two people were shot at by police.

30-year-old Malissa Williams and 43-year-old Timothy Russell were shot at 137 times last November after a police chase.

Cops believed the two had a gun, but, no gun was found.

"It seems like they're dragging along thinking we're just going to disappear. We are not going to disappear. We are not going anyplace. 137 bullets were too many," said Donnie Pastard.

They want the 13 officers who fired the shots and the 100 who didn't follow protocol to be fired and prosecuted.  Black on Black Crime released an inflammatory flier depicting the way Ohio Attorney General Mike Dewine described the police shooting.

"They give the people time to cool off and get disbanded and they come back with the situation,but, we're not going to disband this time," said James Avery.

While the community group rallied other members of the community gathered for a closed door meeting at Mount Olive Baptist Church to hear from members of the justice department -- about the investigation.

"Whether your white of black that could happen to anybody. So as we all have to follow the rules as citizens so does the police department," said Amy Hurd.
