The St. Anthony (MN) City Council, facing “threatened litigation,” voted Tuesday night to pay Diamond Reynolds and her young daughter a $675,000 settlement in connection with the 2016 fatal police shooting of Philando Castile.

Reynolds will receive another $125,000 from the League of Minnesota Cities Insurance Trust and the city of Roseville, making the total settlement $800,000, the Star-Tribune reports.

The settlement resolves Reynolds’ claims of “emotional distress and false arrest,” according to a statement on St. Anthony’s website.

Neither Reynolds nor her daughter was injured, but Reynolds was detained for a time by Roseville police and questioned by the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension. Those issues figured into the settlement, according to the city’s statement.
