CLEVELAND– The Cleveland police officer acquitted on manslaughter charges in the November 2012 chase and shooting has been fired.

Cleveland City Hall said a news conference will be held on Tuesday to announce discipline against police officers for a chase that ended in officers firing 137 shots and killing two suspects. That news conference is set for 1 p.m.

Sources told the FOX 8 I-Team Michael Brelo and five other officers have been fired. Brelo’s father, Paul Brelo, said he is very disappointed and feels the administration is “anti-cop.”

The shooting came after a long chase in 2012. Thirteen officers fired shots. Only officer Brelo faced criminal charges, and last year he was cleared.
