Austin settles police shooting death case

The Austin City Council settled for $750,000 a federal wrongful death lawsuit Thursday with the family of a man fatally shot by an officer in 2009, closing a bitter chapter in one of the city's most notorious police shootings. The settlement with the family of Nathaniel Sanders II came after a 5-2 vote that officials conducted in a matter of minutes - unlike last year when the council considered and rejected the same measure after a lengthy public debate.  Tony Plohetski, Austin American Statesman  08/26/2011
