The Tulsa City Council approves a $110,000 settlement in a lawsuit. It stems from a fatal shooting involving a police officer. It happened in 2009.
The council approved the settlement after Assistant City Attorney Gerald Bender said it would have cost up to $60,000 to provide expert testimony at trial.
Brandi Cox’s son was injured in the shooting and husband, Steven Paul Crowels, was killed.
Authorities say officer Jay Chiarito-Mazzarella fired on the vehicle after the driver put the car in reverse and tried to run him over.
