Police are still looking for a .22-caliber revolver used to kill an Australian college student last week, despite a lead from a teenager arrested in the case who said the gun was handed off to someone else.
Michael Dewayne Jones, 17, told Duncan Police Lt. Joe Shoemake that the gun was given to someone with two brothers in the Stephens County Jail on armed robbery charges, according to a police affidavit.
That led police to search the home of a man who said he’d been visited by the three teens later arrested in the case, but he didn’t want to get involved and didn’t have the gun. Police did not find the weapon at the man’s house.
Chancey Allen Luna, 16, and James Edwards, 15, also were arrested in the Aug. 13 murder of Christopher Lane.
