EASTON - Five local police departments have reached a settlement with an Easton home owner who claims officers used excessive force in a raid that resulted in the death of his friend.

Officers from a regional SWAT team raided the home of Ronald Terebesi while looking for drugs and guns in 2008.

Police found a small amount of drugs, but never found any weapons.

During the raid, Terebesi's friend was shot and killed by officers.

His family settled a multimillion-dollar lawsuit with police last year.
