Christopher Lane murder weapon?

I have not seen any info regarding the weapon used to kill Christopher Lane in Oklahoma. Whatever it was, those juveniles were most certainly not in legal possesion. Does anybody know - rifle or handgun or caliber?

The gun was a .22 revolver. It has not been recovered. According to Duncan police, the perps gave the gun to a person not involved in the murder.

It was a .22 something. I thought I saw one, early, report saying it was a .22 Magnum, but who knows if a modern "journalist" even knows what that is?

There's really nothing in this line of discussion that furthers the cause of firearms ownership. The original question has been answered, so let's leave it at that.
