The Facts About the Connecticut Shooting To DateSubmitted by begintowin on Sat, 12/15/2012 - 14:02
Let's look at the facts so far.
Adam Lanza age 20, lived with his mother, Nancy Lanza at their home in Newtown, Connecticut. Nancy was a school teacher at Sandy Hook. She also was a collector of guns and the registered owner of the two handguns used in the killings (see: http://www.washingtonpost.com/local/crime/adam-lanza-is-reca... )
Apparently there was a third gun, a semi-automatic assault rife in Adam's possession that was found in the back of Nancy's car that Adam drove to the school (see: http://www.myfoxdetroit.com/story/20350339/more-information-... ). The rifle was not used in the murders of the children (see: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/12/15/nyregion/shooting-reported... ).
Adam attended Sandy Hook elementary school as a child along with his brother, Ryan (see: http://www.newsday.com/news/nation/sandy-hook-elementary-bus... ). Ryan age 24, had moved to Hoboken, New Jersey.
Peter Lanza the father, was divorced from Nancy and remarried. He lives in Stamford, Connecticut (see: http://www.stamfordadvocate.com/news/article/Father-of-Newto... )
A total of 26 people were killed by Adam. Nancy Lanza was killed in her home. Adam's body was found at the school with a self-inflicted gunshot wound along with the 20 school children he murdered between 2 classrooms. The principal of the school and the school psychologist were also killed. The names of the other three adults killed have not been revealed as of yet. One teacher was wounded and survived.
The shootings had been reported to have occurred over a period of 1 hour, from 9:30am until 10:30am (see: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/12/15/nyregion/shooting-reported... )
It was reported that Adam was a quiet but intelligent child and excelled at school. No facts have been reported as to the motive for the murders.
Feel free to add facts about this case as they are uncovered.
