The family of an unarmed black man shot in the back by a white police officer will get a $6.5 million settlement from North Charleston in South Carolina, city officials said on Thursday.

The man, Walter Scott, 50, was shot after fleeing a traffic stop in April. The shooting was caught on a bystander's video and reignited a national outcry over police treatment of minorities.

North Charleston Mayor R. Keith Summey said in a statement that the City Council had voted to settle all potential claims over Scott's death for $6.5 million.

"I am glad the city and the family were able to reach a settlement without the necessity of a lawsuit," he said.

The police officer, Michael Slager, faces a murder charge in Scott's death.

"It could have been a trillion dollars. It would never bring my son back. But I thank them for what they did," Scott's mother, Judy, said of the settlement.
