The 20-minute chase on Nov. 29, 2012, involved more than 100 officers. It ended when the two suspects were shot dead. In total, 13 officers fired 137 shots at the vehicle.
According to Newsy's partners at WEWS, only one of the officers tied to the incident faced criminal charges. Michael Brelo was acquitted last May, prompting city-wide protests. He is one of the officers being fired.
