Sandy Hook School Shooting

Little Known About Elementary School Shooter

No criminal record, no motives yet revealed


He's a 20-year-old Connecticut man, but other than his age, the picture of him is blurry. But the details of what law enforcement officials say he did Friday are all too vivid.

That morning, Adam Lanza walked into Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, dressed in "black battle fatigues and a military vest" and began firing, according to a law enforcement source. By the time he was done, 26 were dead—20 of them young students.

The bloodshed ended when Lanza's own life did. He was found dead in a classroom with two firearms, a Glock and Sig Sauer. Another gun, a 223 Bushmaster, was found nearby in a car.
