KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Kansas City police officials have agreed to pay a $200,000 legal settlement to a man who was injured by a tear gas canister during demonstrations in May 2020.
The Kansas City Star reports the man who received the settlement did not sue the department and did not want his name publicized.
He said he suffered a compound fracture in his leg when he was hit by the canister and spent several days in the hospital.
The injury occurred while hundreds of people were protesting on the County Club Plaza in Kansas City after the death of George Floyd during an arrest by Minneapolis police.
