Kansas City police paid $425K to unarmed man shot by officer

KANSAS CITY The Kansas City Police Department two years ago quietly paid $425,000 to an unarmed man who was shot in the face by an officer who initially faced criminal charges in the shooting.

The Kansas City Star reported the payment Tuesday. The newspaper said it recently learned of the 2018 settlement with Anthony Contreras after filing a records request.

Ramsey had said he thought Contreras was reaching for a gun when he fired his gun.
