The city's Law Department announced the settlement on Thursday, saying the "agreement is a fair resolution of a tragic case." Deborah Danner, who had been diagnosed with schizophrenia, was brandishing a bat when Sgt. Hugh Barry shot her. Officers had been called to Danner's home several times before. Her shooting sparked protests and a rebuke from Democratic Mayor Bill de Blasio. Barry was later indicted and found not guilty of murder, manslaughter and criminally negligent homicide charges.
