CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

Investigators on Saturday, March 8, re-enacted the memorable and deadly Cleveland police chase and shooting that left two people dead back in November of 2012.

Dozens of Cleveland police cars and those from the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation along with their personnel recreated the situation in the streets where the events unfolded.

The exercise was to help them determine what happened, or more precisely, what went wrong, on November 29, 2012.

The old Chevy Malibu the two victims were in was present serving as evidence and also a haunting reminder.

 "Boy if you look at that car, if you look at that car then you'll understand why it's important to carry on this investigation," Art McCoy a spokesman for the community group Black-on-Black told our Bill Safos.

They and other community groups welcomed this re-enactment by the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation and the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor's office.

"We continue to investigate different aspects of what happened that night. This is running more tests of what took place," affirmed Joe Frolick communications director for the Prosecutor's office.

The car belonged to Timothy Russell who was behind the wheel.

Malissa Williams was in the passenger seat.

Both were killed by police after a chase through the city.

The details of what exactly they're measuring and test results won't be given to the media or the public until the information is presented to a grand jury.

Again McCoy, "Two people are dead. This is not just a waste of time."

They're are several sides to the debate over what took place that fateful November night in 2012.

Jeff Follmer with the Cleveland Police Patrol Association stated, "This re-enactment doesn't help anything."

After 137 shots by police two people, who did not have a gun, are dead.

Sixty officers and 12 of their bosses were disciplined, one of whom was fired.

But, most are back at work.
