New details in deadly NJ supermarket shootings

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - September 15, 2012

Middlesex County Prosecutor Bruce Kaplan revealed Saturday afternoon that 23-year-old Terence Tyler, a former Marine, was armed with an assault-style rifle and two other weapons when he returned to the Old Bridge Pathmark on Aug. 31. Kaplan says Tyler legally obtained the weapons while in California but the rifle was illegally modified.

Kaplan says Tyler also misrepresented certain details in applications to purchase the weapons. He brought the guns with him when he moved to New Jersey in June, and Kaplan says the rifle Tyler had is illegal in New Jersey.
