Baltimore reaches $30,000 settlement with mother of 9-year-old girl killed in alleged police chase

Baltimore officials are expected to approve a $30,000 settlement this week to end a lawsuit filed by the mother of a third-grade student alleging her daughter was killed when a police officer chased a teenage boy driving a stolen Jeep.

Nine-year-old Amirah Kinlaw was walking from Steuart Hill Academic Academy in West Baltimore to an after-school program when she was hit. A man was also seriously hurt in the June 2016 collision, and a crossing guard and a young boy were injured.

Amirah’s mother, April Carter, brought her case last year, alleging that the officer violated Baltimore Police Department rules and put children’s lives in danger.
