The shooter who killed two people at a St. Louis high school this week bought the rifle used in the attack from a private seller after he was blocked from buying a gun at a licensed dealer, police said Thursday.
Two people — Jean Kuczka, 61, a health teacher, and student Alexzandria Bell, 15 — were killed in the shooting at Central Visual and Performing Arts High School on Monday, officials said.
