Attorney General DeWine Asking for Assistance from Businesses Along Pursuit Route


(CLEVELAND, Ohio) – Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine is asking for assistance from Cleveland-area business owners to help investigators piece together the police pursuit that ended in an officers-involved shooting incident late last month.  Two people died.

Agents with the Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCI) have collected several surveillance videos from businesses located along the chase route, and they are hoping to find more.

"We want to make sure this investigation is as thorough as possible," said Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine.  "If you have a camera that recorded only a few seconds of the pursuit, our BCI agents would like to see it."

The pursuit began at the Cuyahoga County Justice Center on St. Clair Avenue in Cleveland and proceeded along the following route:

  1. South on Ontario Street into Public Square
  2. West on Superior Avenue and across the Detroit-Superior Bridge
  3. South on West 45th Street

  11. North on Interstate 71
  12. East on Interstate 90
  13. South on East 72nd Street
  14. West on St. Clair Avenue
  15. South on East 68th Street
  16. East on Bliss Avenue
