Weapon used in teen's killing was mayor's stolen gun

Prosecutors in Northern California say a gun stolen from Stockton's mayor was used to kill a 13-year-old boy last year.

The San Joaquin County District Attorney's Office says one of two guns stolen from Mayor Anthony Silva was the murder weapon in the killing of Rayshawn Harris.

Prosecutors say Harris was killed by a .40-caliber semi-automatic pistol registered to Silva.

The teen was shot to death Feb. 23, 2015, while he stood in his driveway.

The attorney's office said in a report Friday that Silva provided no explanation for why he failed to notify authorities the gun had been stolen from his home until one month after Harris' death.

Silva, who is seeking re-election, says in a statement he feels terrible about the teen's death.

He says he couldn't comment on the report because he hasn't been provided any details.
