A plea deal is reached in an officer-involved shooting in Aurora that left a young woman dead.

20-year-old Mason Farris was originally charged with Second Degree Murder, First Degree Assault, Armed Criminal Action and Resisting Arrest.

He plead guilty to Resisting Arrest, while all other charges were dropped.

Farris will spend seven years in prison for the crime.

The charges stem from the death of Savannah Hill in May of last year.

At the time, Farris was wanted by police, and Hill was driving a car with Harris as her passenger.

According to court documents, Hill called police from a rest room in a convenience store in Aurora, asking them to pull her vehicle over to arrest Farris.

When officers pulled over the vehicle, Farris tried to get out of the car, causing the vehicle to accelerate at a high rate of speed in reverse.

The vehicle hit one of the officers and a second officer fired a weapon, striking Hill.

She later died from her injuries.
