A white Cleveland police officer who stood on the hood of a car and shot the vehicle's two unarmed black occupants in Cleveland in 2012 was found not guilty Saturday morning of voluntary manslaughter.

Cuyahoga County Judge John P. O'Donnell, who reached the verdicts after a several-week bench trial, also ruled that Officer Michael Brelo was not guilty of two lesser-included counts of felonious assault.

A judge has reached a verdict in the 2012 case of a Cleveland police officer charged with voluntary manslaughter for allegedly standing on the hood of a car and firing into the windshield, killing the vehicle's two unarmed occupants.

The verdict in the case of Officer Michael Brelo will be read at 10 a.m. ET Saturday in a Cuyahoga County court, a court spokesman said.

The killings of Timothy Russell and Malissa Williams, both African-American, were among several police incidents prompting outrage in Cleveland in the past few years, and was one of the cases highlighted by a 2014 Department of Justice report that found that Cleveland police had a pattern of using excessive force.

What led to the deaths of Russell and Williams, prosecutors said, was a chase that began when a car driven by Russell backfired
