Portion of Attorney General Mike DeWine's news conference into the findings of the state's investigation into a deadly Cleveland police chase and shooting.

DeWine's office found the shooting and chase were the result of a systemic failure of the Clevleand Department in terms of command and communication.

Of the 13 officers that fired shots, DeWine says all indicated they felt their lives were in imminment danger.  The number of officers and vehicles taking part created a cross-fire situation that put the lives of the officers involved at risk.

No weapon has been found in the suspects' car nor along the chase route.  Gunshot residue tests, according to DeWine were inconclusive.
