Tracy Martin, Sybrina Fulton

parents of Trayvon Martin have settled in a wrongful-death suit against the homeowners association of the Sanford, Fla. gated community where neighborhood watchman, George Zimmerman, gunned down the teen.

Rumors say the settlement is more than $1M, but the amount has been redacted on public documents, reports the Chicago Tribune.

Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton, Trayvon’s parents, filed suit against the Retreat at Twin Lakes subdivision in August last year.

Neighborhood watch guidelines instructed residents to first alert the police of any suspicious activities and then the captain, George Zimmerman.

When Zimmerman contacted police about what he thought was suspicious activity, he was instructed by the dispatcher to stay in doors. However, Trayvon’s parents claim he stalked their son and eventually open fire.
