The ex-girlfriend of Kansas shooting spree felon Cedric Ford is being charged with giving him guns, which were found at the scene after he killed three people and injured 15 others on Thursday.
Sarah Jo Hopkins, 28, of Newton, Kansas, legally purchased an AK-47 type semi-automatic rifle and a Glock Model 22 40-caliber handgun and gave them to Ford, despite knowing he was a convicted felon who was banned from possessing a firearm, an affidavit claims.
Paternity records filed in Harvey County show Hopkins and the 38-year-old painter at Excel Industries had a 2-year-old son and a 4-year-old daughter together,The Witchita Eagle reported.
Hopkins purchased the guns in March 2014 from a pawnshop, according to the affidavit. She told investigators she moved out of Ford’s home in July 2015, and took the guns with her in August.
According to the affidavit, she had pawned off the guns, only to buy them again after Ford, who has a history of domestic violence, threatened her, NBC reported.
The US Attorney’s Office said she is charged with one count of knowingly transferring a firearm to a convicted felon.
Ford left his work at the lawn-mower manufacturing firm in Hesston, Kansas on Thursday and came back armed, just 90 minutes after he was received a restraining order from another ex-girlfriend.
