UPDATE: According to Jamestown Police Department Captain Robert Samuelson, the gun wasn’t registered. In addition, Samuelson said the gun had three 30-round magazines, and has modifications that make it illegal to possess.
“(McCulley) was going after a group of kids who had allegedly thrown a brick at his house,” Samuelson told WNYNewsNow. “Legally owned or not, this is not a responsible gun owner.”
Samuelson said McCulley was found a block from his home. The incident originated on Price Street.
