LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3.com) -- The mother of unarmed and disabled veteran Stanley Gibson has reached a settlement with Metro's insurance carrier for payment of $500,000 as a result of his death from a December 2011 shooting.
"The payment will be made by our insurance carrier, not by the taxpayers," Metro Officer Jessie Roybal told News 3 today. "The payment will be finalized within the next 90 days the legal department tells me."
The settlement brings Metro’s total payout for the Gibson shooting to $2 million, the most the agency or its insurance carrier has ever paid out on a single shooting.
Rondha Gibson, Stanley Gibson’s widow, received a $1.5 million settlement from Metro in October.
Celeste Gibson, his mother, filed a separate lawsuit against the department. She declined comment through her lawyer Thursday.
Gibson, 43, was killed Dec. 12, 2011, during a standoff at the Alondra apartments, 2451 N. Rainbow Blvd., near Smoke Ranch Road, which began with a mistaken attempted burglary report.
