The Commercial Appeal reports Martavious Banks will receive a $200,000 settlement after a voluntary agreement between him and the city was filed in federal court.

The original lawsuit had sought $10 million in damages.

Banks ran from a police traffic stop and was shot by a Memphis officer in September 2018. Banks was critically wounded.

Banks sued after an investigation showed officers did not have their body cameras activated as required by department policy.
