CLEVELAND, Ohio — It was a story that shocked and angered so many, including Jackie Russell.
“You’re used to hearing this about somebody else but not your own family,” said Russell.
Russell’s brother-in-law is Timothy Russell. Russell and Malissa Williams were involved in the September 2012 high-profile police chase that ended with officers firing 137 shots at the vehicle and leaving both dead.
What started as Rocky River native Michael Milano’s journalism graduate school project nearly a decade later is turning pain into education.
“There’s been multiple versions of the film, hundreds of different cuts and because it was such a sensitive subject manner, I really wanted to make sure we got everything right and that’s why it took many years,” said Milano.
Milano’s documentary 137 shots profile the story of the 2012 incident, and Jackie Russell who lived it is an actress in the film.
