Gun bought in South Burlington found at MA site of double fatal shootout

Cameron Yee, 21, of South Burlington, was arrested yesterday based upon a one count indictment charging him with making a materially false statement in connection with his acquisition of a Glock handgun from a South Burlington federally licensed firearm dealer. Yee was arraigned on the indictment this week before United States Magistrate Judge Kevin J. Doyle.

Court filings state that Yee purchased a Glock .40 on October 11, and the weapon was recovered less than 24 hours later at the scene of a shootout in Springfield, Massachusetts, that resulted in the death of two men.

According to Court records, when Yee acquired the gun he falsely stated to the gun store that he was the actual purchaser/transferee, when he actually was purchasing the weapon on behalf of a man who supplied him with money to make the purchase.
