Woman Sues Pawn Shop for Selling Gun to Daughter

CBS St. Louis

NORTH KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – A western Missouri woman is suing a pawn shop that sold her mentally ill daughter a gun that she used to fatally shoot her father.

Janet Delana of Wellington appeared at a news conference Wednesday with attorneys for the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence to announce the suit filed that morning in Lafayette County Circuit Court.

The lawsuit alleges Colby Sue Weathers was schizophrenic and had a history of serious mental illness when she went into Odessa Gun & Pawn in Odessa, 40 miles east of Kansas City, and purchased a gun June 27, 2012. Just over an hour later she is accused of shooting her father in the back of the head.

A manager at the pawn shop had not seen the lawsuit and declined to comment.
