Washington county reaches deal over man killed by police

EVERETT, Wash. (AP) — A Washington state county has approved a $1 million settlement with the family of a man who was shot and killed by a sheriff’s deputy. The Daily Herald reports the Snohomish County Council voted to approve the agreement Monday. Authorities say 24-year-old Nickolas Peters was shot and killed following a car chase by Snohomish County sheriff’s deputies in October 2018. Peters’ family filed a lawsuit last summer seeking $20 million in damages through a jury trial. The county admitted no wrongdoing and the family agreed to drop all claims against the county as part of the settlement.
