A law enforcement official familiar with the case says the weapon was bought legally in August 2010 from a gun shop in Mentor, Ohio. The official says the gun was a Ruger .22-caliber Mark III target pistol.

The official spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anyonymity because of the ongoing investigation.

Seventeen-year-old T.J. Lane is suspected of opening fire in the cafeteria at Chardon High School on Monday. Three students died and two were wounded.
