Radio host to get funds from ex-LAPD cop gun sale

LAS VEGAS (AP) - A North Las Vegas gun dealer is giving a local radio military veteran's care advocate the $4,025 raised selling a handgun once owned by a rogue former LAPD officer who killed four people before fatally shoting himself in February.

Bargain Pawn owner George Bramlett says he searched for more than a week to find a recipient for the money after learning that representatives of the families of two California police officers killed by Christopher Dorner didn't want the money.

An Internet auction closed April 23.

Bramlett bought the .38 special revolver from Dorner in January for $50.

Veterans Care Foundation Inc. official and local radio talk show host Jim Lytner says the money will go to help locate and help homeless military veterans in the Las Vegas area.
