Aurora Has to Shell Out

The Denver suburb of Aurora has agreed to pay $15 million to settle a lawsuit brought by the parents of Elijah McClain, a Black man who died after suburban Denver police stopped him on the street and put him in a neck hold two years ago, the city and family attorneys announced Friday.

The five involved in killing Mr. McClain were finally indicted for manslaughter and other offenses.
