CLEVELAND, Ohio — In light of the ongoing trial of Cleveland Officer Michael Brelo, Cleveland pastors Monday will ask for calm and order regardless of the verdict.

A press conference was held at 1 p.m., and pastors spoke on the situation.

“We are aware that forces outside and inside of our city are working to bring a negative view of Cleveland to the rest of the world. We want to stress how important it is for all of us to remain in a state of calm as we dialogue and respond to whatever the decision of the court,” Pastor Larry Harris, President of United Pastors In Mission, said in a press release.

Brelo, 31, faces two counts of voluntary manslaughter for the November 2012 shooting deaths of Timothy Russell and Malissa Williams.
