AG: Gun Was Purchased by Shooter's Ex-Girlfriend
Origin of second weapon still undetermined.
The Ruger .357 revolver recovered from Cullen Mutrie's home at 517 Post Road in Greenland was purchased on Jan. 16 by his ex-girlfriend Brittany Tibbetts at a gun show in Manchester, the attorney general's office announced this afternoon.
A press release issued minutes ago said state police have not yet confirmed the origin of the second gun found at the scene, a 9 mm pistol, but they have determined that it was not one of the weapons seized from Cullen Mutrie in July of 2010. Both the .357 revolver and the 9mm pistol were seized from the house following the April 12 shooting in which Mutrie killed Greenland Police Chief Michael Maloney and injured four other officers attempting to serve an arrest warrant.
Mutrie, who was out on $10,000 personal recogizance bail at the time, was forbidden from owning or carrying guns.
The attorney general's office said the investigation is ongoing, but no further information is expected to be released this week.
A memorial run is scheduled for this weekend for Maloney, and the public is invited to participate in or volunteer to help with the event.
