Sandy Hook School Shooting

Killer Had Forced His Way Into School

Police say they're gathering "very good evidence"


Connecticut State Police said this morning that the shooter in the deadly school massacre was not allowed into the school voluntarily and forced his way in. Asked at a news conference whether the shooter had left any emails or other writings that might explain the rampage, state police Lt. Paul Vance said investigators had found "very good evidence" and hoped it would answer questions about the gunman's motives. Vance would not elaborate.

Vance pleaded with reporters to respect the privacy of the victims' families. He said a list of victims would be released as soon as the medical examiner's office had concluded its work.
