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.

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.

CHICAGO (AP) — Doctors may have found a way to help young breast cancer patients avoid infertility caused by chemotherapy. Giving a drug to shut down the ovaries temporarily seems to boost the odds they will work after treatment ends, and it might even improve survival, a study found.

"They're really exciting findings" that could help thousands of women each year in the United States alone, said the study's leader, Dr. Halle Moore of the Cleveland Clinic.

"This has implications far beyond breast cancer," for young women with other types of tumors, too, added Dr. Clifford Hudis, breast cancer chief at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City.

He is president of the American Society of Clinical Oncology, which featured the study at its annual conference in Chicago on Friday. More than 30,000 cancer specialists from around the world are attending.

Cleveland police officers indicted in large chase

CLEVELAND (AP) — Six officers in Cleveland's troubled police department were indicted Friday in a November 2012 car chase that ended with two unarmed suspects dying in a hail of 137 shots, was decried as a racially motivated execution and is part of a wide-ranging federal investigation.

Patrol officer Michael Brelo has been charged with two counts of manslaughter, and five supervisors have been charged with dereliction of duty for failing to control the chase.

Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Tim McGinty said at a news conference Friday that the law dictated he not seek charges against the other 12 officers who fired shots that night.

"No one respects or admires the work of a dedicated professional police officer more than a prosecutor," McGinty said. "They are heroes, but they, too, must answer to the law."

According to the report, the passenger in Gordon's Mercedes was issued a citation for possession of marijuana in an amount under 200 grams. The marijuana was found in a blue bag with identification.
