Michael Brelo, 31, was acquitted at a court in Cleveland, Ohio, on Saturday of two counts of voluntary manslaughter for the deaths of Timothy Russell, 43, and Malissa Williams, 30.

The Cleveland cop who jumped onto the hood of a car and fired 15 shots at an unarmed couple killed during a gunfight with police has been found not guilty.

Michael Brelo, 31, broke down in tears as he acquitted in a Cleveland, Ohio, courtof two counts of voluntary manslaughter for the deaths of Timothy Russell, 43, and Malissa Williams, 30.

The pair died during a 137-shot barage by police after a high-speed chase in November 2012.

Judge John O’Donnell said it was difficult to determine who delivered the fatal blow, adding that Brelo acted responsibly on the night of the incident.

The trial, which began on April 6, took place as high-profile killings of unarmed black men by white police officers continue to pile pressure on U.S. law enforcement.
