CLEVELAND (AP) — In announcing charges against a Cleveland patrolman in the deaths of a driver and his passenger, a prosecutor cites a recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling prohibiting police from firing on suspects after a public threat has ended.

Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH'-guh) County prosecutor Tim McGinty says Officer Michael Brelo (BREE'-loh) stood on the hood of the suspect's car and fired at least 15 shots after a police chase had ended.

In all, 137 shots were fired. Driver Timothy Russell and passenger Malissa Williams were killed. No gun was found on them.

Brelo was charged Friday with manslaughter; five supervisors were charged with dereliction of duty.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Police in Ohio say a 4-year-old girl has drowned in a pool during a party, apparently while guests were singing "Happy Birthday" to another child.

Columbus police say the family of Sinaia Moore found her at the bottom of the backyard pool Saturday evening in Columbus.

Authorities say many of the dozens of partygoers were singing "Happy Birthday" to a 1-year-old before adults spotted Sinaia at the bottom of the pool.

They tried reviving her until paramedics arrived and took her to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Indianapolis grasps for answers in a violent year

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Two men in bright yellow safety vests stroll through a rundown neighborhood where boarded-up houses and padlocked storefronts stand as silent witnesses to a wave of street violence that threatens to taint the reputation of Indiana's capital city.

As they trade small talk with women and children sitting on their porches, the men from the Ten Point Coalition aren't just being friendly. They're trying to keep people from killing each other — part of a broad effort to tamp down the bloodshed using methods old and new, proven and unproven.

The number of homicides in Indianapolis is increasing at an alarming rate, putting the city on pace to have its deadliest year in at least eight years. Already ranked 22nd on the FBI's list of deadliest cities, the city could move up and rival its 162 killings in 1998, the worst year on record, if the hot summer months accelerate the violence as expected.
