Fountain settles with mother of police shooting victim



The City of Fountain has agreed to pay $450,000 to Elizabeth Alvar, the mother of Patrick O'Grady, 17, who was killed by Officer Jonathan Kay in a Sept. 24, 2015, shooting, despite the District Attorney's Office finding, in December 2015, that the shooting was justified.

O'Grady reportedly reached for a gun in his mother's bathroom when Kay confronted him, leading to the fatal shot. The settlement agreement bars Alvar from disclosing information or giving interviews about the settlement. Kay remains on Fountain's police force.
