N.Y. inquiry turns to 30-round clips

ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Federal agents are trying to determine the source of 30-round magazines used by William Spengler Jr., a felon accused of killing two western New York firefighters and wounding two others after luring them to his house by setting it ablaze.

Agents are investigating whether the magazines were bought in Pennsylvania, said Scott Heagney of the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. New York state bans the sale of magazines with a capacity of more than 10 rounds, while Pennsylvania has no capacity limit.
