Mayor Kasim Reed this morning said the City of Atlanta had agreed to pay $4.9 million to the family of Kathryn Johnston, the 92-year-old English Avenue resident who in 2006 was gunned down by Atlanta cops in a botched drug raid.

According to WSB-TV, the city will pay $2.9 million this fiscal year. The remainder will be paid out next year.

WSB-TV:


Lawyers have been negotiating for seven months and reached the settlement Friday, Reed said.

The Atlanta City Council will approve the settlement at their 1 p.m. meeting Monday.

Reed said the city does not admit guilt.

More details to come.
