CLEVELAND  -- Cleveland residents are expressing anger over the minimal information released in the deaths of two people shot by police after a high-speed chase.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that 175 people went to a community meeting about the shooting at an East Cleveland high school on Friday night.

Timothy Russell and Malissa Williams were killed Nov. 29 by Cleveland police in a hail of gunfire in a middle school parking lot in East Cleveland.

Thirteen officers fired 137 shots at the car following a high-speed chase that began after officers responded to the sound of a gunshot near police headquarters.

No gun or shell casings were found inside Russell's and Williams' car. Officers have said the driver rammed a patrol car and nearly hit an officer, justifying force.

Funeral services were held for Malissa Williams on Saturday.
