The Arizona Attorney General's Office has filed a lawsuit against a now-defunct Tucson firearms retailer accused of defrauding gun buyers of more than $14,000.

Attorney General Mark Brnovich says his office filed a consumer fraud suit accusing Black Weapons Armory of scamming gun owners.

The AG's complaint alleges Black Weapons Armory took payments for firearms and failed to deliver those firearms to consumers.

Brnovich says his office received 15 complaints last January after the retailer closed.

The suit states that consumers say they paid for firearms that were never ordered or received.

The retailer is accused of falsely telling customers the delay in receiving firearms was because of a manufacturing delay.
