Good grief, could this flippin’ preventable murder get any more bizarre? First we learn Kate Steinle was randomly shot by an illegal alien. Then we learn ICE had requested notification of his release, which the Sheriff’s Department ignored. Then the illegal alien claimed he shot Ms. Steinle accidentally while trying to shoot a sea lion (a position he has since modified). Now it comes out the gun he used actually belonged to a “federal agent”.
KRON 4 has learned that the gun used to kill a 32-year-old woman on San Francisco’s Pier 14 belonged to a federal agent.
A Sig Sauer pistol was used in the fatal shooting, a source told KRON 4. The gun was recovered last Thursday in the bay by a police dive team. The source described the weapon as being an expensive, high-end, common police gun.
Another source with knowledge of the investigation told CNN’s Sara Sidner that the gun belonged to a federal agent.
