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.


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.
