There is new information in the Copley Township shooting rampage that killed eight including the gunman.
The Akron Beacon Journal reports that Michael Hance walked into a pawn shop in downtown Barberton just five days before the shooting spree where he purchased one of two handguns used in the the incident.
Employees at Sydmor's Jewelry on Second Street Northwest told the Beacon Journal that they didn't notice anything unusual from Hance's behavior.
Hance completed a background check before purchasing the .45-caliber Hi-Point weapon. The background check showed no criminal history.
Hance was a 1978 graduate of Norton High School.
