The city of Cleveland has settled a lawsuit with the families of Malissa Williams and Timothy Russell.
U.S. District Court Judge Polster's chambers confirmed that an agreement was reached Monday, July 14, 2014, and the documents were filed Wednesday afternoon.
The terms of the settlement have not been revealed.
It was a year-and-a-half ago that 13 officers fired 137 shots into Russell's car during a deadly 28-minute police chase that started in Cleveland and ended in East Cleveland. Williams was riding in the passenger seat.
The wrongful death lawsuits accused officers of using excessive force.
Meantime, six of the 13 officers involved in the deadly chase have been charged in connection with the deadly chase and shooting.
Officer Michael Brelo is charged with two counts of voluntary manslaughter -- he fired 49 of the 137 shots. Sgt. Randolph Daley, Sgt. Patricia Coleman, Sgt. Michael Donegan, Sgt. Paul Wilson and Lt. Jason Edens each face two misdemeanor counts of dereliction of duty.
A trial date for the officers has not been set.
