(KSL News) The father of a woman killed in the Trolley Square shootings wants to own the gun that killed her, but the weapon's original owner says he won't give it up.

The Smith & Wesson .38 Special was stolen from the Wyoming home of David Darlington in 2006 and then sold to gunman Sulejman Talovic months before the February shootings.

Vanessa Quinn was the one of the six victims killed with the gun, and her father told the Salt Lake Tribune he wants to have it in his possession so it won't harm anyone else.

However, Darlington says the gun is lawfully his, and he wants it back.

The gun is currently in the possession of the Salt Lake City Police Department.
