The gunman drove to the school in his mother's car, the second official said. Three guns were found — a Glock and a Sig Sauer, both pistols, inside the school, and a .223-caliber rifle in the back of a car.
He said that it appeared that all of the children had been killed by a long rifle that the gunman was carrying, one of several weapons police recovered from the school.
Outfitted in combat gear, Mr. Lanza apparently defeated the intercom system. This contradicted earlier reports that he had been recognized and allowed to enter.
“He was not voluntarily let into the school at all,” Lieutenant Vance said. “He forced his way in.”
The mystery deepened as Newtown education officials said they had found no link between Lanza's mother and the school, contrary to news reports that said she was a teacher there. Investigators said they believe Adam Lanza attended Sandy Hook Elementary many years ago, but they had no explanation for why he went there on Friday.
