Cops Claim They Can’t Trace Gun in Ohio State Shooting

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Police at Ohio State University say one of two handguns a janitor used to fatally shoot a supervisor, injure another and kill himself once belonged to a retired Columbus police officer.

Police issued a final report Tuesday on the March 9 shootings. The report says investigators were unable to determine whom the guns were subsequently sold to or how they ended up in Nathaniel Brown’s possession. 

The report did not indicate that the guns were sold illegally.

The 50-year-old Brown had received a bad job evaluation and was upset over his pending dismissal. He was also fighting foreclosure on his house. 

Four people were inside a maintenance building office suite when Brown opened fire. Hunting.
