Source: 1 in custody, gun found in 3 NYC deaths
A law enforcement official says police have recovered the weapon they believe was used in the shooting deaths of three New York City businessmen of Middle Eastern descent, and a person is in custody.
The official says the sawed-off Ruger rifle that had a makeshift light on its barrel was found Wednesday in a duffel bag belonging to a balding, middle-aged man seen on surveillance footage moments after the most recent shooting. The official was not authorized to speak publicly and spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity.
No arrests or identifications have been yet been made, but police are speaking with the man.
The official says the bag also contained the .22-caliber ammunition found at the scene of all three shootings this year, black gloves and women's stockings.
