CHICAGO — Two people in Minnesota are now facing charges for buying the gun used in two Chicago shootings.
The gun was used when a man on a bike shot a woman on her way to lunch in the Fulton River District. Federal officials said that woman was now paralyzed. The gun was also used to shoot a law enforcement officer before the suspect’s arrest.
Prosecutors in Minneapolis said 38-year-old Sequana Cigolo and 48-year-old Jayson Lynndrotti Winston illegally purchased the semi automatic pistol.
Police said Cigolo purchased the gun for a cousin of her ex-boyfriend, who was a convicted felon, and lied on ATFa forms.
