TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Lawyers for Pima County have agreed to settle a case with the family of a man shot and killed during a SWAT raid.

Jose Guerena was shot by officers serving a search warrant at his home on Tucson's west side in May 2011.

Regional SWAT team members say they started firing after they saw Guerena armed with a rifle.

Our CBS affiliate in Phoenix spoke with the lawyer for Guerena's family.

Attorney Christopher Scileppi says the agreement still needs the approval of the Pima County Board of Supervisors and the court.

He didn't say how much the family would get in the settlement.

Other local governments with officers on the SWAT team are also named in the Guerena lawsuit.
