City of Buffalo reaches settlement with estate of Craig Lehner

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — The estate of Buffalo Police Lieutenant Craig Lehner and the City of Buffalo have reached a tentative $1.275 million settlement agreement, the attorney representing Lehner’s sister told News 4.

The Buffalo Common Council’s claims committee has approved the settlement. It will now go to the full council for a vote, which is expected to happen next week.

Lehner went missing on October 13, 2017, four years to the day that the committee vote is taking place, during a training exercise in the Niagara River. His body was found days later.

This is a developing story.
