Metro Council may vote on settlement in wrongful death lawsuit

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - The East Baton Rouge Metro Council could finally vote on a nearly $500,000 settlement in a wrongful death lawsuit.

A police officer shot and killed Carlos Harris, 23, three years ago in the parking lot of a nightclub near Cortana Mall.

Even though a grand jury did not find enough evidence for a criminal charge, a grueling civil matter has finally reached this point.
