CLEVELAND — Cleveland has agreed to pay $375,000 to settle a lawsuit alleging that a white police officer shot an unarmed black man who was trying to surrender.

The settlement in the lawsuit filed by 29-year-old Kipp Holloway was finalized Thursday in U.S. District Court in Cleveland.

The lawsuit stems from a May 2014 shooting. Holloway claimed he fled to a garage after receiving a ride from two men whom he subsequently learned were being chased after committing a burglary.
