The company that made a rifle used in one of the worst school shootings in the US has offered 33 million dollars to several victims’ families.

The proposed settlement for the 2012 Sandy Hook massacre from Remington, America’s oldest gun-maker, came as part of a bankruptcy hearing for the company.

It also comes in response to a lawsuit brought by families of nine of the 26 victims.

Each family would receive some $3.66m.

It is subject to the approval of the Alabama judge overseeing Remington’s bankruptcy case.
