A judge has approved a $300,000 settlement of a lawsuit stemming from a fatal police shooting in Culpeper.
The family of Patricia Ann Cook will receive about $170,000 from the settlement. The rest of the settlement will cover attorney's fees.
The 54-year-old woman was shot five times by former Culpeper Police Officer Daniel Harmon-Wright in February of 2012 following an altercation.
The officer was convicted of voluntary manslaughter and sentenced to three years in prison.
The settlement also dismissed civil claims against Harmon-Wright, as well as Police Chief Chris Jenkins and former Police Chief Dan Boring.
