San Bernardino officials have agreed to settle a civil lawsuit filed by the family of 19-year-old Jerriel Da’Shawn Allen, who was shot in 2007 by police officers following a vehicle chase that crashed through three backyard fences.

The city agreed to settle the wrongful death lawsuit, filed on behalf of Allen’s two children and his parents, for $575,000, lawyer Joseph Arias confirmed Wednesday in a telephone conversation. San Bernardino City Council approved the settlement at its meeting on Monday, he said.
