The Arlington City Council will formally approve the settlement Tuesday night, settling a wrongful death lawsuit from the family of 19-year-old Christian Taylor, who was fatally shot by former Arlington police officer Brad Miller on Aug. 7, 2015.

Surveillance video from the Classic Buick GMC dealership showed Taylor, who was unarmed, jumping on automobiles and crashing a car into the showroom.

Six officers were on the scene, including Miller, along with his training officer, Cpl. Dale Wiggens. Miller entered the showroom without telling his training officer where he was going.

The city's police chief, Will Johnson, fired Miller several days after the shooting. A grand jury later declined to indict Miller.
