Bull's Eye gun store sold, owner says

The Tacoma gun store where the rifle used in the Washington, D.C.-area sniper killings was traced is being sold, the principal owner said.

The sale of Bull’s Eye Shooter Supply was set to be finalized Wednesday, co-owner Brian Borgelt told the media.

He would not give the sale price and described the buyer only as a longtime friend.

The store was the source of the .223 caliber Bushmaster rifle that was found with sniper defendants Lee Boyd Malvo and John Allen Muhammad when they were arrested in October.
