Gunman obtained weapon legally

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - NBC12 has learned the gunman, Ross Ashley, who shot a Virginia Tech police officer last week, legally purchased the gun used in the attack.

State police say the Radford University student bought the 40-caliber handgun in January.

But investigators say they still have not found any link between Ashley and the victim, Officer Deriek Crouse.
