News conference planned in Cleveland Thursday about November police chase and shooting

CLEVELAND - Thursday morning at 10, a news conference about the November police chase and shooting in Cleveland will be held at the city's federal courthouse. 

Members of the U.S. Justice Department plan on attending the meeting. 

It's unclear what new details will be released. 

NewsChannel5 has a crew covering the news conference. 

The Nov. 29 shooting case is currently in the hands of the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor. A grand jury will determine if any criminal charged will be filed. 

According to investigators, on that November night, thirteen Cleveland police officers fired 137 rounds at Timothy Russell and Malissa Williams, killing them both. 

Last month, the Ohio Attorney General's Office released findings from its investigation. Attorney General Mike DeWine said there were several departmental and procedural errors in how Cleveland police officers handled the incident.
