As more is learned about Dylann Roof, the 21-year-old who has admitted to killing nine African American members of a traditionally black church in Charleston, S.C., as they were engaged in Bible study, there have been a number of questions raised, and some have been answered.

But already, there is a growing controversy, and it involves the weapon he allegedly used in the murders.

Where did Roof get his .45 cal. pistol? Initial reports said that he was given the gun by his father for Roof’s 21st birthday. This report from Raw Story was typical of the early reporting regarding the origins of Roof’s handgun:

The man suspected of fatally shooting nine people at a church in Charleston, South Carolina on Wednesday, was given a gun by his father as a 21st birthday present in April, his uncle told Reuters on Thursday.


Roof’s father gave him a .45-caliber pistol for his birthday this year, [uncle Carson] Cowles said.
