The Family of a Utah Man Who Was Killed by Police Gets $4 Million

On Friday, the family of Zane James — a man shot and killed by police in 2018 — received $4,000,000 in a settlement from the city of Cottonwood Heights.

The Cottonwood Heights insurance provider the Utah Local Governments Trust, settled with the family in response to a police-involved shooting that took place on May 29, 2018, a press release from the city states.

Tiffany James, Zane’s mom, says the family has been in shock all week with the settlement.
