Sorry, I missed this response before.
09:56AM – Recording at 12:36: “Be advised, we have multiple weapons. Including one rifle and a shotgun” (3)
I don't know how the officer determined what guns were involved, whether they found casings or bigger guns in the school. This was quite early in the
investigation though. If they found both shotgun and rifle in the school, that raises the question of whether the video of a long gun (or multiple
long guns) found in the trunk that night depicts the discovery of additional weapons.
So let's try to count the guns here shall we? We have 4 handguns found with Lanza according to ABC. We have the “Be advised, we have multiple
weapons. Including one rifle and a shotgun” warning meaning they either saw the weapons or the shell casings - Total: 4 hand guns, 1 rifle, 1
shotgun - so far.
Later they show police removing 2 guns (1 definitely being a shotgun) from the trunk of Lanza's car. Either these are all separate weapons or Lanza
somehow returned to his car and placed them back in the trunk (apparently after firing BOTH). No shotgun was claimed to have been fired or even seen
outside the car except by this one radio report, right?
Later reports placed 2 handguns and 1 rifle with Lanza inside the school, meaning there must have been a 2nd rifle in the trunk. Either way we now
have a minimum of
2 handguns, 2 rifles and a shotgun or a maximum of
4 handguns, 2 rifles and 1 shotgun.
These are more guns than Nancy Lanza owned at any rate. Where did they come from and why would anyone carry such a redundant amount of armament?
But wait! We're not done gun counting yet. Here's one more for the pile - screenshot taken from helicopter video showing man arrested in woods.
The officer at the top you can watch as he enters screen from right, kneels down near suspect and walks away bearing a long firearm of some sort.
Final count? 2 perhaps 4 handguns, either 2 rifles and 2 shotguns or 3 rifles and 1 shotgun - far more than what Nancy Lanza owned or any one person
would or could possibly use.
