A Maryland county has agreed to a $20 million settlement with the family of a man who was handcuffed in a patrol car when a police officer shot and killed him.
Prince George’s County Executive Angela Alsobrooks announced the settlement Monday.
The county police officer who killed 43-year-old William Green in January was arrested on charges including second-degree murder and has a trial scheduled for next year.
Michael Owen Jr., who was a 10-year veteran of the police department, has been jailed since his arrest.
Alsobrooks said Green was unarmed with his hands cuffed behind his back when Owen shot him six times.
