WILTON - The parents of 12-year-old Nicholas Naumkin have agreed to settle their wrongful death lawsuit.

Nicholas was accidentally shot and killed by his friend in December of 2010.

This happened inside the home of Edward O’Rourke, who owned the gun.

The two families were in the midst of a civil trial yesterday when, according to the Times Union, the Naumkins accepted $400,000 from O’Rourke’s insurance company.

The boy who fired the fatal shot served two years of supervised probation.
