ST. LOUIS  •  The federal government has agreed to pay $520,000 to the family of a man fatally shot by a park ranger near the Gateway Arch in 2008.

As is typical in such cases, neither side admitted fault in the civil lawsuit settlement, finalized in U.S. District Court here Monday on the day the trial was scheduled to start.

Doug Rudman, one of the lawyers representing relatives of Randolph Scott Jr., 23, called it a “compromise settlement” in what he said was the only fatal shooting by a ranger in the Arch’s history. Scott’s family originally sought $10 million.
