( KTRS ) The city of Springfield, Missouri, has agreed to pay $250,000 to settle a wrongful-death lawsuit filed by the family of a man police fatally shot in February.

Under the proposal, Springfield police and former officer Andrew Bath will not be held liable in connection with the death of Michael Ireland “in exchange for a one-time payment of $250,000.”

Greene County Prosecutor Dan Patterson has determined that Bath was justified in his shooting of Ireland, who was unarmed.

Of the money, about $82,000 will go to Ireland’s mother, more than $75,000 will go to his father. Around $92,000, will go to lawyers.
