Trayvon Martin's parents settle with Florida homeowners association in wrongful-death claim
SANFORD, Fla. (KABC) -- The family of a Florida teen shot and killed by a neighborhood watch volunteer has settled a claim against the homeowners association of the Florida subdivision where it happened.
The wrongful-death claim settlement amount given to Trayvon Martin's parents is being kept confidential.
Martin was fatally shot in February 2012 during a confrontation with George Zimmerman at the subdivision north of Orlando.
Zimmerman has been charged with second-degree murder for shooting the unarmed 17-year-old.
The neighborhood watch volunteer claims he was attacked and acted in self-defense.
