A sheriff's ballistics tests found that a federal marshal killed white separatist Randy Weaver's 14-year-old son during a 1992 shootout, contradicting the federal government's conclusion that the bullet could have come from Weaver. "It is clear by the ballistic evidence that Sammy Weaver was killed with a bullet fired by U.S. Marshal Larry Cooper's 9-millimeter Colt," Boundary County Sheriff Greg Sprungl said.

A federal appeals court agreed to rehear arguments on whether the FBI sharpshooter who killed Randy Weaver's wife during the 1992 standoff at Ruby Ridge, Idaho, can be prosecuted on manslaughter charges. In June, a three-judge panel of the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that Idaho prosecutors could not hold Lon T. Horiuchi responsible for actions taken as a federal lawman. On a request from prosecutors, however, the 11-member court will rehear the case at an undetermined time.
