CLEVELAND (AP) - Cleveland residents are expressing anger over the minimal information released in the deaths of two people killed in a barrage of 137 bullets fired by Cleveland police.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that some of the 175 people who went to a community meeting at an East Cleveland high school on Friday night were family members who wondered aloud why they haven't gotten more details about the deaths of Timothy Russell, 43, and Malissa Williams, 30.

The two were killed Nov. 29 in a hail of gunfire in a middle school parking lot in East Cleveland. Thirteen Cleveland police officers fired 137 shots at the car following a high-speed chase that began after officers were responding to the sound of a gunshot near police headquarters.

The Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner said Russell was hit 23 times, and Williams 24.
