The teen was “assisting investigators in locating the weapon, a 9mm handgun that he said he tossed nearby,” the Limestone County Sheriff’s Office said in a tweet.

On Tuesday, the sheriff’s office said three of the five people shot in the Elkmont residence were confirmed dead at the scene and two were airlifted in critical condition.
