NBC News - The City of Columbus, Ohio, reached a $10 million settlement with the family of Andre Hill, a Black man who was fatally shot by a now-former police officer as he walked out of the garage of a home, officials announced Friday.
The settlement, the highest such amount ever paid by the city, will move to the Columbus City Council for a vote on Monday.
"We understand that because of this former officer's actions, the Hill family will never be whole," City Attorney Zach Klein said in a statement. "No amount of money will ever bring Andre Hill back to his family, but we believe this is an important and necessary step in the right direction."
In addition to the settlement, he said that a gymnasium at the Brentnell Community Center will be renamed after Hill.
Hill, 47, was fatally shot Dec. 22 by former Officer Adam Coy after Coy and a second officer responded to a call that a person in a vehicle kept turning the engine on and off.
