Father of Washington State Teen Gunman 'Slipped' Through System: Reports
(Reuters) - The father of a Washington state high school student who killed four classmates before committing suicide last year was able to "slip" through the system to get the firearm his son used, media reports quoted federal prosecutors as saying on Tuesday.
Raymond Fryberg, 42, is facing six counts of illegal possession of firearms in violation of a 2002 court protection order that barred him from obtaining guns, an indictment shows.
Among the weapons were a rifle, a shotgun and a Beretta Px4 Storm handgun. His son Jaylen Fryberg used the Beretta in the Oct. 24 shooting at Marysville-Pilchuck High School, about an hour's drive north of Seattle.
