Illinois shooting victim sues state police over gun buy: report

A man who was wounded in a shooting at an Illinois warehouse last month has sued the state police for wrongly allowing the shooter to buy the handgun he used to kill five co-workers and injure others, local media said. Timothy Williams, an employee at Henry Pratt Company in Aurora, 40 miles (65 km) west of Chicago, was shot three times during the rampage, the Chicago Tribune said on Friday, citing the lawsuit.
