CLEVELAND -- Autopsy reports have been released on the two people who died when a police chase ended in a shooting last November.

The Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner has ruled the deaths of Timothy Russell, 43, and Malissa Williams, 33, as homicides.

The medical examiner determined Russell died of 23 gunshot wounds to the head, neck, trunk and extremities. Toxicology reports determined Russell had cocaine in his system.

Williams died of 24 gunshot wounds to the head, neck, trunk and arm. The medical examiner says she tested positive for cocaine and marijuana.

The two died in November after a police chase involving dozens of officers ended in a hail of gunfire. Investigators say 13 officers fired 137 shots at the car carrying Russell and Williams.

Investigative reports from the city and the state are due to be released by the end of the month according to officials.
