Casey initially told police that the gun, a .380-caliber handgun, was his deceased grandfather's, and that he forgot it was under his car seat, a police report states. Casey then told officers he illegally bought the gun "off the streets" because his cousin was a homicide victim and he was a past victim of a robbery, the report states.
