There are some early reports of injuries, and allegedly it was 2 gunman at first and now it's being reported that "1 gunman was killed".
There were very few non-fatal injuries reported, indicating that once targeted, there was rarely any chance of escape, and that the gunman was unusually accurate in his fire.
"They're police at every door leading us down this way, this way. Quick, quick, come on. We ran down to the firehouse. There's a man that pinned down to the ground with handcuffs on," he said.

From what I'm reading, it's worse.
He shot his mother in the face at her residence and then got in her car and drove to the school to open fire in the school afterward.
(According to the link I posted above.)
That doesn't sound right to me. Why would he go to the school after already killing his mother?

Regardless, why would this guy wear a mask?

The mother of the shooter Nancy Lanza has a brother named "Kingston Police Officer" James Champion.
No wonder this story seems to be hiding facts and changing facts.

Don't dodge my reply with an mirror. I merely pointed out to you that there were more than children murdered today. You seemed to not bring that up at all. Murder is murder. It is the act and intent, not the tool used or the victim. Childrem and adults alike were murdered today by a sadistic idiot. A gun did not walk into that school and fire itself. A lunatic did this to 26 people.
Twenty children and six adults died. The preponderance of the victims were children. Morally speaking the deaths of innocents is more shocking to me than of adults. You are correct, however, six dead adults is also tragic and a great loss of life.
And we agree, a sick person did this. Probably for reasons we will never fully know or be able to begin to understand.
Where I take great issue, personally, is when people throw unrelated things like "abortion" or "liberal" into the equation, without any cause or reason to believe that either thing is relevant to this tragedy.
Using the bodies of the dead as a megaphone for personal agenda, politics, and bias is simply wrong.

I don't think we will ever really get a rational explanation. It's what most of us want, but these kinds of things are rarely ever rational at all. You really do have to be some kind of crazy to kill a bunch of kids, that much I know. Even people I know that do not like kids, wouldn't even smack one.....
