Family of Jonathan Ferrell to Settle Lawsuit

Jonathan Ferrell

The city of Charlotte has reached a $2.25 million settlement in a lawsuit brought by the family of a Black man shot to death by a White police officer in 2013.

City Attorney Bob Hagemann announced at a news conference Thursday that the Charlotte City Council unanimously approved the settlement with the family of Jonathan Ferrell. He said he expects the city to pay the family within a matter of days. Hagemann said the settlement contains no admission of guilt. “While we realize that money is an inadequate means of compensating Mr. Ferrell’s family, we feel that this was a fair and equitable settlement,” Hagemann said.
