Family of man shot by off-duty cop reaches $1.2M settlement

CLEVELAND, Ohio — The family of an Ohio man who was shot and killed by an off-duty Cleveland police supervisor in 2018 has reached a partial settlement for $1.2 million. The Plain Dealer reports that the parents of Thomas Yatsko signed off on a partial settlement with the companies that own the bowling alley where the shooting happened on July 14. According to court documents, the owners of the former Corner Alley Uptown are the only party to settle. Litigation against Cleveland and Sgt. Dean Graziolli remains ongoing. Yatsko’s parents — Melissa Yatsko and Darian Allen —  appealed U.S. District Judge Dan Polster’s decision to dismiss their claims against the city and Graziolli.
