New York City has reached a settlement of more than $4 million with the family of an unarmed man fatally shot by a police officer in a darkened stairwell nearly two years ago, the attorney for the family said Tuesday.Liang will pay $25,000 to Kim Ballinger, the mother of Gurley's daughter as part of the settlement.Liang was sentenced to five years' probation and 800 hours of community service; he later apologized to Gurley's family.Liang's supporters said he has been made a scapegoat for past injustices. More than 10,000 of his backers rallied in New York and across the U.S. after the verdict, protesting his conviction.
