WEST VALLEY, Utah — We are now learning where the gun in that shooting outside Hunter High School last week came from, and that all students involved attended Hunter.
West Valley Police report the gun was bought in Utah in 2013, but they still don’t know how the suspect actually got the gun.
We have traced the gun believed to have been used in the shooting back to its original sale. That sale occurred in the state of Utah in 2013. Further investigation is underway to determine what path the gun took to end up becoming involved in this incident. 2/3

Two teenage boys died in the shooting, and a third was shot. Ephraim Asiata is still hospitalized, but his condition is improving.
Police are still trying to figure out what prompted the fight that lead to the shooting.
Prosecutors earlier this week said they were considering trying the 14-year-old suspect as an adult when the case gets to a courtroom.
This story is developing and will be updated.
