The Columbus, Ohio, City Council has agreed to pay $780,000 to settle a lawsuit brought by the family of a 4-year-old girl who was shot by a police officer trying to shoot her dog. The officer had gone to the family's home because a neighbor asked for his help after the girl's mother accidentally cut herself and was frightened by the dog.
