The family of slain Miami Hurricanes player Bryan Pata will get $2 million from the insurance companies of the apartment complex where he was murdered, family attorneys said yesterday.

Pata was fatally shot outside the Colony Apartment in Kendall, Fla., on Nov. 7. The apartment complex did not provide the 24-hour security it had advertised, and several outdoor lights were obscured or not working, particularly where the shooting took place, said the family's attorneys.

Pata's parents will receive two $1 million payouts, the full policy limit from both of the complex's insurance companies. The crime remains unsolved.

Relatives said Pata had promised to help financially support his family once he signed an NFL contract.
