The University of Cincinnati has settled a lawsuit with the family of a man who died after campus police used a taser on him.

Everett Howard‘s family says they’ll receive two million dollars from the school, which will also provide free tuition to Everett’s siblings.

Howard died in 2011, after a confrontation at one of the UC dorms. Officers were called to the scene showed up ready to tackle the apparent disruption. Howard was unfortunately subdued and a Taser was used on him at the scene leaving his lifeless body behind in the crowd of students.

After an autopsy, the Hamilton County Coroner ruled that Howard’s death was “Undetermined“. Because cause of death was undetermined, the U.C. Police officer who used a taser on Howard was cleared of charges.
