EAST CLEVELAND, Ohio — Agents with the state Bureau of Criminal Identification were at a parking lot in East Cleveland Saturday, the scene where Cleveland officers shot two unarmed suspects following a chase in November 2012.

BCI confirmed they were assisting the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s office ‎and were  placing cruisers where they were the night of the incident.

Joe Frolic, a spokesman for the prosecutor’s office, declined comment.

Neither agency would say why exactly they were there, or if it was for trial preparation. Six Cleveland officers are  facing criminal charges for their involvement with the chase and shooting.

Timothy Russell and  Malissa Williams were killed after the deadly chase that started the Justice Center after an officer thought someone in the suspects car fired a shot at him.

The chase ended in East Cleveland when 13 Cleveland police officers fired 137 shots killing the two unarmed suspects.
