DENVER, Aug. 13 (UPI) -- The parents of the two Columbine teenage gunmen have reportedly reached a settlement with the parents of five of their victims.

The Rocky Mountain News reports the parents of Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris have settled with the holdout families of five slain students who sued them following the deadliest school shooting spree in U.S. history.

Thomas and Susan Klebold say they will soon issue a statement about the settlement. Wayne and Katherine Harris reached an agreement Tuesday during an all-day settlement conference before Denver U.S. Magistrate Judge Patricia Coan.

The newspaper said the settlements are with the families of slain Columbine High School students Daniel Rohrbough, Kelly Fleming, Matthew Kechter, Lauren Townsend and Kyle Velasquez.

Nearly all of the Columbine victim families' claims have now been settled or dismissed.
