    A Cleveland man is grieving after police killed his mentally ill sister outside her family’s home, Cleveland.com reports.

    Tanesha Anderson, who reportedly suffered from bipolar disorder and schizophrenia, was declared dead at a clinic Thursday, two hours after a dispute with officers, during which they allegedly slammed her to the pavement outside her house.

    "They killed my sister," her older brother Joell Anderson told the news site. "I watched it.”

    According to the report, a family member called officers to the home, reporting that the 37-year-old woman was disturbing the peace.
