CLEVELAND -- Clergy from several local groups gathered at the Justice Center for a noon press conference on the Nov. 29 police chase and shootings that left two people dead.

Representatives from United Pastors in Mission, Baptist Ministers Conference, and Pastors Council, who represent more than 200 congregations and 50,000 voters in the Greater Cleveland region.

"Criminal investigation must remain front and center," Rev. Tony Minor, Executive Director of the United Pastors in Mission sayd. "Everyone and all of us will be blessed by a thorough, fair and unbiased investigation. It is good for Cleveland, it is good for the families and it is also good for the officers to have their day in court."

After saying he supports police, he also added that "all policies and practices must be followed. ...  No one is above the law."

It was back on Nov. 29 when Timothy Russell and passenger Malissa Williams were each shot more than 20 times by police following a pursuit.
