“That, again, I believe interrupted what potentially could have been seven more victims,” Bouchard said.

The handgun — a 9mm Sig Sauer SP 2022 pistol — had two 15-round magazines. A third magazine was also purchased by the suspect’s father, but hasn’t been located, Bouchard said.

Authorities did not say where the teen’s father had purchased the gun.
