According to The Root.com:

The Cleveland Police Department has not released the names of the officers who responded in Jones’ case, but noted that the pair have been placed on a mandatory three days’ administrative leave after use of deadly force.

On Thursday, Jones broke into the grocery store at around 2 a.m. by prying open the metal cage with a crowbar and kicking down the front door, an employee said. He was looking for cigarettes but also took some Canadian coins. He attempted to take the cash register but dropped it.
