CLEVELAND -- Timothy Russell and Malissas Williams' families, along with a number of community leaders have been demanding answers since the chase happened in November.
Tuesday night, they say they are happy with today's findings, but aren't done seeking justice. Family members say the attorney general's findings back up what they've been saying all along and community leaders hope that it will be a springboard for change.
For Williams' aunt, Dorothy Sigelmeier, the pain came flooding back.
"She didn't deserve it. She didn't deserve to be murdered like that," she said.
Sigelmeier calls her nieces's death unjustified and the number of police cars involved and bullets fired excessive force.
News of Attorney General Mike DeWine's investigation findings brought a bittersweet mix of emotions.
"It was murder and we want them charged with murder -- not homicide," Sigelmeier says.
Since the shooting, race relations between police and the African American community have been strained. However, the protests have subsided, as well as the angry rhetoric.
As for the attorney general's key finding that "the system failed everyone," community activists see it the other way around.
"No, the officers failed the system -- there was enough in place," an activist said. "Race has a way of affecting decisions."
Meanwhile, the American Civil Liberties Union says one revelation troubles them the most.
Investigators say one officer jumped on top of his police cruiser and fired into the windshield. A total of 49 casings at the scene matched his weapon.
As a family seeks justice, a community calls for change, saying that the bottom line remains that two people are dead.
The families have already hired attorneys in anticipation of a possible civil lawsuit.
The ACLU is now asking the Department of Justice to intervene and oversee policy changes within the Cleveland Police Department to make sure this doesn't happen again.
