Description

We began our investigation into lost and stolen guns after Bay Area woman Kate Steinle was shot and killed with a gun stolen from the vehicle of a Bureau of Land Management Ranger. By the time we finished our story months later, three more people had been killed with stolen guns in the Bay Area, including an Oakland muralist murdered with a gun stolen from an officer with U.S. Customs and Border Patrol. Our investigation uncovered hundreds of guns missing from Bay Area law enforcement agencies and hundreds more reported stolen from federal law enforcement agencies. Following our investigation, two major Bay Area cities announced ordinances aimed at preventing gun thefts. https://youtu.be/4Mi4jX7galQ
