BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

The city of Baton Rouge could be on the hook for nearly $500,000 in a wrongful death lawsuit.

The settlement is on the agenda to be introduced at the East Baton Rouge Metro Council meeting on Wednesday.

A Baton Rouge police officer shot and killed Carlos Harris, 23, in 2011. It happened in the parking lot of Club Insomnia, which was near Cortana Mall.

The officer was never charged.

The family's attorney says it's been a long and difficult process to get to this point.
