Federal prosecutors claim Charlie Tan convinced his friend to buy him the shotgun used to kill his father by saying he needed it for a hunting trip, according to new paperwork filed in federal court in Syracuse.
Prosecutors claim Tan illegally obtained the gun used to shoot and kill his father, Jim Tan, at their Pittsford home back in 2015 through his friend Whitney Knickerbocker.
The paperwork says Tan gave Knickerbocker a case of beer in exchange.
Tan will face trial later this month on federal gun charges.
