Mother settles in California shooting of teen

PASADENA, Calif. (AP) — The mother of a Southern California teenager who was unarmed when he was fatally shot by police has settled with the city of Pasadena.

The Pasadena Star-News reported Saturday ( that Anya Slaughter agreed to drop her portion of a federal civil rights lawsuit against the city in the death of her son, 19-year-old Kendrec McDade. The amount of the settlement was not disclosed.

McDade was shot and killed by two officers in March 2012, following a 911 report of an armed robbery.

McDade was later found to be unarmed.

The caller later pleaded guilty to filing a false police report and said he lied about a gun to get a faster police response.
