Rochester woman faces weapons charges in ambush shooting

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) – A New York college student
has been indicted in connection with guns used by her neighbor in an
ambush of first responders.

The U.S. Attorney's Office says Thursday that a
grand jury indictment charges 24-year-old Dawn Nguyen (wehn) of the
Rochester suburb of Greece with lying on a form when she bought the
guns, selling them to felon William Spengler Jr., and possessing guns
while using marijuana.

Authorities say Spengler used the rifle and shotgun
in the Dec. 24 attack that killed two volunteer firefighters and
wounded two others as they arrived at his burning home in Webster.

Nguyen's lawyer, Matthew Parrinello, tells the Democrat and Chronicle he's awaiting documentation from prosecutors before responding in detail to the charges.

Nguyen faces a state charge of falsifying a business record.
