Woman charged in firefighter killings

WEBSTER, N.Y. — The convicted felon who ambushed firefighters on Christmas Eve, killing two, could not legally buy the guns he used, but he picked out the semiautomatic rifle and shotgun and was in a store with a neighbor’s daughter when she bought them for him, police said Friday.

The woman, Dawn Nguyen of Rochester, was arrested Friday and faces a federal charge of knowingly making a false statement for signing a form indicating she would be the legal owner of the guns, US Attorney William Hochul said. She also was charged with a state count of filing a falsified business record, State Police Senior Investigator James Newell said.
