October 30, 2003|From Times Wire Reports

The family of a man whose death at the hands of police led to a riot in Cincinnati in 2001 will receive $1 million from the city in a wrongful-death settlement, court documents showed.

The papers from U.S. District Court, which ordered the settlement, indicated that $700,000 would go to Angela Leisure, the victim's mother, and $300,000 to his son, who was 4 months old when Timothy Thomas was killed on April 7, 2001.

Thomas, 19, was running from police officers who had chased him into a dark alley when he was shot.
