The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives released a photo of guns similar to the ones that appeared to have been used in Wednesday’s congressional shooting.
The ATF determined that a 9mm handgun and 7.62-caliber rifle found at the scene were legally purchased by James Hodgkinson, the shooter, according to an FBI news release.
Forensic experts also did an anaylysis on the trajectory from the shooting, which can help them determine the number of shots fired and the direction from which they originated.
Investigators planned to release the scene to the Alexandria Police Department this weekend, according to the FBI.
