Arrests likely in Trolley Square massacre gun probe

Arrests likely in Trolley Square massacre gun probe

Talovic had the gun for at least seven months, acquiring it from an individual in June or July, said Lori Dyer, resident agent in charge of the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives in Utah. The gun originally was bought legally at a store by a man out of state and was stolen, Dyer said. Then it changed hands six or seven times among three people before reaching Talovic. It kind of made its way back and forth between the same people multiple times," Dyer said.

Then it's onto Police Chief Chris Burbank and a chorus of deny, deny, deny.

There is no sign the shooting was an act of terrorism, Burbank said. Talovic did not appear to be motivated by any racial or religious agenda, he said. The chief reiterated that there is no evidence that Talovic said anything in Arabic during the shooting, as FOX News has hinted. ''People are saying, 'He's so obviously a terrorist,' '' Burbank said. "Well, we're not seeing that connection. Neither is the FBI.

Unh-huh. And I'm Grace Kelly.
