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.
