Findings from an administrative review into Cleveland police officers who fired during a 137-shot barrage that killed two unarmed people should be released next month.

The city's safety director said earlier this week the administrative review has just wrapped up and will be sent to the mayor.

Thirteen Cleveland officers who fired their guns have been notified that they face administrative discipline.

The officers include Patrolman Michael Brelo, who was acquitted in May of manslaughter charges for having fired the last 15 shots in East Cleveland in November 2012.

All the officers were cited for joining the chase and leaving the city without permission. Many were cited for endangering other officers by creating a crossfire situation. No officers were injured during the barrage.
