Police: Va. Tech shooter obtained gun legally
Question of the Day
The man who fatally shot a Virginia Tech police officer before killing himself legally obtained the handgun used in the shooting, Virginia State Police said Tuesday.
Ross Truett Ashley bought the .40-caliber semiautomatic handgun in January from a licensed Virginia gun dealer, police said. Police did not release the dealer’s name.
Investigators are still searching for a motive for the killing and have found no clear-cut link connecting the two men thus far.
