Official: Ohio suspect says he stole uncle's gun

Posted:

CHARDON, Ohio (AP) -- An official says the teenage suspect in the deadly Ohio school shooting told authorities he stole the gun he used from his uncle.

   A law enforcement official familiar with the case says the weapon was bought legally in August 2010 from a gun shop in Mentor, Ohio. The official says the gun was a Ruger .22-caliber Mark III target pistol.

   The official spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because of the ongoing investigation.

   Seventeen-year-old T.J. Lane is suspected of opening fire in the cafeteria at Chardon High School on Monday. Three students died and two were wounded.
