Sandy Hook Elementary School Rampage: At least 29 dead (including at least 20 children), shooter 24-year-old Adam Lanza dead, possible other suspect being questioned

Connecticut School Shooting

This is an ongoing situation. I will add to this as more information comes up. It also appears that the shooters mother, Nancy Lanza, and father (name?) has also been found dead. Also, suspect being questioned is possibly shooter’s younger brother (possibly Adam Lanza).

Updated information: The shooter was Adam Lanza, not Ryan. The father is apparently alive, but someone is dead in the NJ home. The girlfriend of Adam Lanza is missing at this time. Police are questioning Ryan Lanza.

  1. There seems to be a copycat effect with these school shootings. They’ve become the favorite target of the mass shooters. They also like work places and malls, and just about any other place where there’s lots of people. However, the school seems to be their favorite. We’ve had Columbine, Virginia Tech, and now Sandy Hook, as well as many minor shootings along the way. In Columbine, the reason was bullying; in Virginia Tech it appears to have been caused by a mentally ill, anti-social student, and now we have to wait to hear what caused this tragedy.

    • Please remember, Columbine was not the first school shootings, or school violence. There have been many throughout the entire 20th Century. All victims, not killers, need to be remembered. And everything I have read on Columbine tells me that those two were not bullied but that was an excuse made to explain what happened. Most of the victims there were innocent victims who did not even know the killers. It is better to remember the victims, rather than give space to those who took their lives for whatever reason they did.

  2. This was a premeditated planned murder assault committed by what would appear to be a sociopath. That he targeted little children is as sick as a crime can be.

    My condolences go out to all of the familes affected by this henious crime.
