The gun used to killed two TV reporters in Virginia were purchased legally by the man who pulled the trigger, The Roanoke Times reports.
Vester Lee Flanagan II bought the Glock 9 mm pistol in July from a federally licensed gun dealer in Virginia, an ATF official said.
ATF spokesman Tom Faison said a proper background check was conducted.
“I have no indication that anything was done illegally or improperly, or any shortcuts were made,” Faison said.
