The father of a Fairfax County teenager who fatally shot two police officers outside a police station last year has been charged with helping his son obtain the guns used in the attack.
Brian H. Kennedy, 50, of Centreville, was indicted by a federal grand jury on six weapons charges and possession of marijuana, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Virginia in Alexandria.
He was arrested yesterday and faces up to 66 years in prison if convicted on all counts.
Federal prosecutors say Kennedy was prohibited from possessing firearms as an alleged unlawful user of a controlled substance. They say he possessed numerous firearms, including semi-automatic rifles, revolvers, shotguns and more than 2,500 rounds of ammunition.
