The Zimmermans and attorney Mark O'Mara have settled a lawsuit with the private security company that was suing for unpaid security services from the aftermath of the Trayvon Martin shooting.

George Zimmerman's first security team, Associated Investigative Services, claims that Zimmerman and O'Mara owe them more than $27,000 plus interest, according to the lawsuit filed in December 2012.

The security company's attorney tells Local 6 on Friday the $30,000 was paid from the Zimmermans. No other details were immediately available.

After Zimmerman shot and killed Martin, he received numerous death threats, prompting him to hire bodyguards. Zimmerman already paid the company $40,000 to provide bodyguard services for Zimmerman and his wife, Shellie, along with hotel rooms and meals among other expenses, according to the lawsuit.

The security company says they worked for Zimmerman for about three months.

O'Mara represented George Zimmerman in his second-degree murder trial in the summer of 2013.
