LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Glock gun company has settled a lawsuit filed by a former Los Angeles police officer who was shot and paralyzed by his 3-year-old son.
City News Service says attorneys for Glock and former Officer Enrique Chavez told a judge Wednesday that they've reached a settlement in the negligence suit.
However, no terms were divulged.
Chavez was off-duty and his son, Collin, was in the back of the family truck in 2006 when the 3-year-old grabbed his father's gun and fired.
Chavez was shot and paralyzed from the waist down.
Chavez and his wife sued, arguing the gun lacked a grip safety and was too easy to fire.
Glock noted that Chavez acknowledged leaving the gun near his child, who wasn't in a car seat.
