One big mystery behind the gunman who killed five people in Santa Monica is how he got his weapons.

Federal authorities recovered two weapons from John Zawahri – a semiautomatic rifle and an old “black-powder handgun,” The Los Angeles Times reports.

Authorities also are trying determine how he amassed a large collection of ammunition.

“We’ve been at his house, going through his computer too,” said the official, who requested anonymity because the case was ongoing.

The L.A. Times reported that Zawahri has a history of mental illness.

Ron Peterson Firearms Peterson filed a lawsuit last week, AP reported. The news service reported that it was the third lawsuit to be filed to try and block the regulation from taking effect.

ATF spokesman Drew Wade told The Associated Press on Friday that his agency will vigorously defend the regulation.

Another lawsuit has been filed by National Shooting Sports Foundation, which represents the firearms industry, AP reported.
