The Portland City Council today voted to approve a nearly one million dollar settlement for William Kyle Monroe, who was shot by a Portland police officer with live shotgun rounds in 2011 and permanently disabled.

Officer Dane Reister claimed that he believed he was firing non-lethal beanbag rounds, but in fact fired live rounds.

That was Portland city attorney Jim Rice speaking with city commissioner Amanda Fritz at this morning’s city council meeting.

For more on this story, KBOO’s Jennifer Kemp spoke with Dan Handelman of Portland Copwatch.
