PERKASIE, Pa. - A settlement has been reached in the case of a Bucks County man who was shot to death by police last year.
Perkasie Borough agreed to pay the family of 26-year-old Michael Marino Junior an unspecified amount of money in exchange for dropping legal action against the borough and its police department.
In June of 2012 Perkasie police officer Seth Mumbauer shot and killed Marino during an altercation.
Officials say Marino was under the influence of drugs yet handcuffed during the altercation.
Bucks County District Attorney Dave Heckler didn't charge Mumbauer with any criminal wrongdoing but he said officers could have done more to diffuse the situation.
