Family of teenager killed in 2018 police shooting speaks on $4M Cottonwood Heights settlement



Late last week, the City of Cottonwood Heights announced that its insurance provider had settled with the family of Zane James for $4,000,000.

The 19-year-aged was shot and killed by a Cottonwood Heights police officer in 2018.
