Accused Gun Provider Waives Hearing
23-year-old Allen Funk of Smethport is accused of selling the gun to Lawrence Fox of Buffalo for $300 in cash and cocaine even though he admitted to police “he knew Fox to be a criminal and crazy,” according to papers filed in District Judge Dominic Cercone’s office. Funk also allegedly sold or traded a box of 100 bullets.
On October 13 on Chautauqua Place Fox fired several shots from a .45 caliber handgun at Robert Vaughn of Pittsburgh. Fox was sentenced in April to 5 to 10 years in state prison.
