Grand Jury considering another deadly Cleveland police shooting

Posted: Updated:
CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

Multiple sources confirm a Cuyahoga County Grand Jury has been hearing testimony about another deadly Cleveland police shooting from 2012, the shooting of Kenny Smith.

Smith was shot in March of that year by an off-duty officer in Downtown Cleveland. Police said at the time the officer noticed shots coming from a car in a parking lot. He called dispatch, and when a patrol unit pulled over the car, the off-duty officer shot Smith. Police said Smith refused to get out of the car, and he reached for a weapon.

However, Attorney Terry Gilbert has filed a lawsuit on behalf of the family questioning what happened.

A grand jury has also been hearing testimony about the police shooting of two people after a massive chase in November of 2012.
