COLUMBUS, Ohio — The city of Columbus has agreed to pay $10 million to the family of Andre Hill, an unarmed Black man fatally shot by former police officer Adam Coy in December.

City Attorney Zach Klein announced the settlement — the largest in the city's history —with the family of Andre Hill in a press release Friday afternoon.

“We understand that because of this former officer’s actions, the Hill family will never be whole,” Klein said. “No amount of money will ever bring Andre Hill back to his family, but we believe this is an important and necessary step in the right direction.”
