Gun used in Rocky Point shootout traced back to Fast and Furious

New details on the deadly shootout in the popular beach community of Rocky Point.

The shootings happened two weeks ago between authorities and suspected cartel gunmen.

A U.S. official confirms that one of the weapons, used in the shootout is tied to Fast and Furious. That's the botched operation run by agents in the Phoenix office of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

They allegedly let gun smugglers buy some 2,000 weapons hoping those guns would lead them to drug traffickers.
