VIDEO: Cleveland Suspect To Cop: 'I Would Kill You'

One of the two suspects who died at the end of a police pursuit in East Cleveland was a familiar face to officers due to some 50 contacts with police dating back to 2001.

Malissa Williams, 30, was killed at the end of a deadly pursuit in a 1979 Chevrolet Malibu along with Timothy Russell, 43, on Nov. 29. Thirteen officers fired 137 rounds at the Malibu following a 20-minute pursuit.

Prior to the pursuit, officers arrested Williams dozens of times for drug use, prostitution, theft and other petty crimes, reports the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Williams, who reportedly sufferred from schizophrenia, also threatened officers during the most recent arrest four days before the chase. Video obtained by Fox News Cleveland shows a handcuffed Williams riding in the back of a patrol car.

In the video, which was taken on an officer's cell phone, Williams says, "I would kill you, blow your f***ing brains out." She continued to threaten officers who escorted her inside the jail.
