Daryl Washington, the attorney representing Jones' family, confirmed to KENS 5 Tuesday that Chacho's has settled its portion of the suit, which was filed in federal court.

The amount remains undisclosed.

Expressing the family’s desire for justice, Washington released a statement to the KENS 5 stating "Robert Encina has still not gone before a grand jury. There is no reason why he should not be indicted for this shooting."

The suit against the city and police department are also still ongoing.
