The pistol that Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev used to kill one police officer and seriously injure another reportedly came from a Maine gang.

The black Ruger P95 was purchased at a Cabela's in Scarborough, Maine in 2011, according to the Los Angeles Times. The gun then ended up in the hands of a Portland gang member Biniam Tsegai, who goes by "Icy." Tsegai is currently in jail on drug dealing and robbery charges.

It was unclear exactly how the gun made its way from Tsegai to Tsarnaev, McClatchey reported.

Tsarnaev used the gun to kill MIT police officer Sean Collier and seriously injure Richard Donohue, a Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority officer, on the night of April 18, 2013 in Watertown during a manhunt. Tsarnaev was eventually shot to death. His brother, Dzhokhar, is scheduled to go on trial in November.

Shoddy reporting: Donahue was hit by friendly fire. HOW did the gun go from an ARRESTED gang banger in Maine to a Terrorist in Massachusetts? THIS is an interesting story. HOW do guns get into the hands of the bad guys? WHO originally bought the gun? This is a DEEP story that needs to be researched and reported. LAW ABIDING gun owners put up with so much and the BAD GUYS seem to do whatever they want.

I had been led to believe that he drove over his brother and killed him. His own brother, can you imagine that boys and girls?! And seldom if EVER does the Lame Streem mEDIA ever mention this crime that is not charged to this scumbag!

Something wasn't right about most of the reports coming from the police. Didn't the head of the Boston police already admit the police where shooting at each other. You know firing their weapons at each other in a circle. After listening to the "retired" Chief admit what the police were doing in Watertown I think it became clear the police force is not trained and leadership is not capable of leading the police force if they're firing their weapons at each other while positioned in a circle. At the same time yelling that the suspect is firing on them. Hasn't it been reported in other such pursuits of suspects and display of power that bystanders and even policy shot or killed it was by the police and not the suspects. Didn't they kill the kid in Florida who was in the middle of "writing a confession" at the time. Something just smells not right.
