GONZALES, La. - An internal Police Department investigation has uncovered no wrongdoing stemming from a Dec. 18 police chase that left two people dead.

The Advocate reports that in a two-paragraph written statement, Police Chief Sherman Jackson said he had reviewed all reports and audio recordings available from the chase, which started at the Tanger Outlet Center in Gonzales. The chief said he found no policies or procedures were violated by the unidentified pursuing officer.

The chase started when two shoplifting suspects, Kevdrinka Williams, 25, of Baton Rouge, and Tremaine Wickem, 20, of New Orleans, fled the Tanger parking lot after being detained by a police officer.

The chase ended with a head on crash in Iberville Parish that killed Williams and Wickem and injured the driver and passenger of a truck.
