New developments in the fallout from Cleveland's police chase.

By now, the numbers are burned into the minds of Cleveland residents. 137 shots fired, two people dead.

Now, some of those officers and supervisors will be facing disciplinary action. 

Police officials are now preparing internal charges for punishment against patrol officers. This comes after word on punishment of 12 bosses.

On Wednesday, Cleveland City Council got a briefing on the review of the chase. A turn by turn look at what happened. On Tuesday, the city announced internal punishment will be handed out against a captain, a lieutenant and 12 sergeants. Half will go before the Safety Director - that means the maximum punishment for them is they can be fired. City leaders still talking about what they don't know about this.

"I did not see all the evidence yet, and I certainly will not see all the evidence until it's presented at an administrative hearing," said Cleveland Safety Director Martin Flask.

The Chief and Safety Director have said they want to keep an open mind in disciplinary hearings, but these reviews have gone on for months and months.

Punishment will likely to be handed out against dozens of patrol officers in the next couple of weeks.

A prosecutor is reviewing the shooting after the chase for any criminal charges. Councilman Kevin Conwell tells Reporter Ed Gallek his council may suggest policy changes.
