How can i write this lead in past tense?

LEDE: Owners of Steak & Ale restaurant settles a 1-Million lawsuit for selling alcohol to a minor that eventually led to the young man's death.

  • English -

    Change settles to settled.

    So does this sound right?

    LEDE: Owners of Steak & Ale restaurant settled a $ 1 Million lawsuit for selling alcohol to a minor that eventually led to the man's death.

  • English -

    I'd add "The" >> The owners of . . .

    Also, saying the "young" man's death makes it clear that it was the minor who died.

    Even better would be to include the man's age. >> the 20-year-old man's death.
