Another firearm traced to the botched gun-running investigation Operation Fast and Furious has turned up at a shooting, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports

The Tribune wrote today that a semi-automatic pistol found at a bloody scene where five people, including a Mexican beauty queen, were killed in Sinaloa in November was tracked back to ATF Agent George Gillett Jr., who oversaw the gun-running probe.

The Tribune learned of the incident in a Dec. 21 letter obtained from the Justice Department.

Federal authorities have been criticized for mishandling Operation Fast and Furious and losing track of guns.
