COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — A Colorado gun shop owner says the gunman who killed more than two dozen people at a Texas church bought two firearms in his shop.
Jeff Lepp, who owns Specialty Sports and Supply in Colorado Springs, says Devin Patrick Kelley bought a pistol from his shop in 2014 and a revolver in 2015 after passing background checks.
Lepp says the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives contacted him about the pistol Sunday, and he also told them about the revolver. He believes Kelley likely didn’t own the revolver anymore because investigators didn’t ask about it.
Authorities have said Kelley bought four guns from federally licensed dealers in Texas and Colorado over the last four years. Among them were the AR-15-style rifle used in the church shooting and handguns found in and near the shooting site.
