SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A survivor of the Trolley Square shooting spree is suing over a weapon used in the massacre.

Stacy Hanson and wife Colleen are suing Rocky Mountain Enterprises of Nevada, owner of the West Valley City pawn shop where Sulejman Talovic purchased a shotgun with a pistol grip.

Talovic killed five people and injured four at Salt Lake City's Trolley Square mall in February 2007. He died in a shootout with police.

Hanson's lawsuit says the shop should have known that the shotgun would put others at risk. The lawsuit also names Westley Wayne Hill, who sold the weapon. An attorney for Hill and the pawn-shop owner declined to comment.
