" Officers involved in a 2012 shooting in Cleveland are suing the city and police officials, alleging racial discrimination.
They claim the defendants have a pattern of treating non-African American officers harsher than African American officers, when it comes to officer-involved shootings of African Americans. The plaintiffs in the federal suit are not African American.
The incident cited in the suit began when officers saw a car speeding and heard what they thought was a gunshot directed towards them.

No weapon was ever found in the car." read more
