The city council voted unanimously to settle the lawsuit brought by Floyd’s family.

The Minneapolis, Minnesota city council voted unanimously Friday to pay $27m to settle a lawsuit filed by George Floyd’s family.

In July, Floyd’s family sued the city and the four police officers charged in his death last May.

The suit alleged the officers violated Floyd’s rights when they restrained him, and that the city allowed a culture of excessive force, racism and impunity to flourish in its police force.

This is a developing story. More to come.
