A company that made a rifle used in one of the US’s deadliest school shootings has settled with the families of victims for $73 million.

The settlement from Remington Arms comes in response to a lawsuit brought by the families of nine of 26 victims of the 2012 Sandy Hook massacre.

The case marks the first time a gun-maker has faced liability for a mass shooting.

Until now, the industry had immunity from litigation.

Each family will receive a share of the settlement, but other details of the deal were not disclosed.
