A federal weapons charge has been filed against a witness in the case against a 73-year-old man accused of fatally shooting three people at suburban Kansas City Jewish sites.

A May 7 grand jury indictment shows John Mark Reidle is accused of lying about buying a Remington shotgun at a Walmart in southwest Missouri on April 9. Reidle has pleaded not guilty to the charge of importing/manufacturing firearms.

The Kansas City Star first reported that Reidle is among witnesses listed on the Johnson County, KS, complaint against Frazier Glenn Cross Jr.

Cross is charged with killing three people in attacks at the Jewish Community Center in Overland Park, KS, and the nearby Village Shalom senior care facility.

The indictment does not link the shotgun purchase to the April 13 shootings.
