The families of slain students and survivors of the 2005 Red Lake shooting in Northern Minnesota have reached a settlement with a company hired to develop crisis plans for the school. A hearing on the settlement is scheduled for 4 p.m. today in Hennepin County District Court before Judge Lloyd B. Zimmerman.

Details on the amount of the settlement between the families and Burnsville-based MacNeil Environmental Inc. were not disclosed, according to the Associated Press. A different lawsuit against the school district resulted in a $1 million settlement distributed between 21 families of the victims, according to the AP.

In 2005, Jeff Weise, a 16-year-old student at Red Lake High School on the Red Lake Indian Reservation, killed nine people and injured seven before taking his own life with a shot to the head. The Red Lake massacre was the worst school shooting since Columbine in 1999.
