The family of a South Carolina man killed by police has received a $75,000 wrongful death settlement out of the state’s Insurance Reserve Fund, according to a report released by the agency. The police had forced their way into the man’s home after he was a victim in a robbery and assault call.

The victim, Charles Edward Rosemond Sr. fired shots at the Greenville County deputies who broke down the door of his apartment in December 2015 after a neighbor called 911, injuring one officer with a superficial head wound. That officer recovered from his injuries. Rosemond was shot in the leg during the interaction and died while the deputy was being treated for his injuries. The lawsuit filed claimed that the deputies were negligent when they failed to provide prompt first aid to Rosemond as well.
