OXNARD, Calif. (AP) - A settlement has been reached in the lawsuit over the accidental killing of a 21-year-old man by Oxnard officers two years ago.

The Ventura County Star (https://bit.ly/RG0g6J ) cites a court document filed this week that shows the lawsuit over the death of Alfonso Limon Jr. was settled May 16.

Police admitted they mistakenly fired on Limon, an innocent bystander, because they believed he was a suspect during a shootout that followed a traffic stop.

Limon’s family said he had been out jogging when he was caught in the crossfire in October 2012.

Terms of the deal are not immediately available. Police Chief Jeri Williams tells the newspaper she expects the proceedings to be finalized within about 60 days.



Calls to Limon’s lawyer and a family member were not returned Wednesday.
