Victims of a shooting rampage at a University of Pittsburgh psychiatric clinic will share a $500,000 settlement from the deceased gunman's estate.
According to Channel 11’s news exchange partners at TribLIVE, court records filed Monday state John Shick's renter's insurance policy will pay nearly $63,000 to each of the five victims or their families, and three others who claimed emotional distress.
The 30-year-old gunman walked into Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic on March 8, 2012, and opened fire, killing a therapist and wounding four others. Police shot and killed Shick.
Allegheny County Judge Stanton Wettick is expected to approve the settlement Friday.
An attorney representing 66-year-old Kathryn Leight, a receptionist who survived a gunshot to the chest, called the $500,000 sum "inadequate." Calls to others involved in the lawsuit weren't immediately returned.
