SEATTLE — The father of a teenager who used his dad’s gun to kill classmates at a Washington high school in 2014 has been sentenced to two years in prison on firearms charges.

Raymond Fryberg was sentenced Monday. He was convicted in September of illegally owning six firearms, including the gun his 15-year-old son, Jaylen, used to kill four classmates and himself.

A domestic violence protection order filed by Fryberg’s former partner should have kept him from owning a gun. But a record of the order never made it into criminal databases used by firearms dealers during gun purchases.

Prosecutors say Fryberg lied on the form he filled out when he bought the guns to hide the restraining order. His lawyers said he didn’t know he was prohibited from having firearms.

Prosecutors had asked for a 33-month sentence. Fryberg’s attorneys had sought probation.
