Think I found the kid. Ryan Lanza. Early 20s. Lives in NJ. From Newtown, CT.

Facebook



Kid? Why do you think this is him?



I have a bad habit of calling people kid. He's not actually a kid.

They said his name was Ryan Lanza.
Early 20's.
Lives in NJ (where reports say the shooter drove from)
He's from Newtown, CT (where the shooting took place)



And it's been shared by hundreds of people on facebook calling him the shooter, although that's not necessarily gospel.

it's being reported that he was 20 years old and his mom was a teacher at the school and her class room was the target. (i heard it on the radio, sorry for no link)

this is tragic. i feel horrible for the kids and families involved.

It just makes me want to cry. I think it's sad that it has to come to this, but I'm thinking it's time for armed police at every school. The system in place isn't working and crazy fuckers like this piece of shit are able to commit these horrible acts too easily. What a coward. Just kill yourself you asshole, why take innocent kids with you?

18 little kids died. Sounds like the kid that did the shooting with his brother, had some problems at home, and then took it out on innocent children.

I couldn't even imagine getting a phone call saying there was a shooting at your kids school, and finding out your child was one of the victims.

I read the title and heard it on the radio briefly. I just cant read or watch shit like that, as a parent, more as a human that just is heart wrenching to anybody

Apparently from what I read the shooter was Adam Lanza (20 years old). His brother Ryan Lanza wasn't the shooter and he is in custody right now but not being questioned as a second shooter.

Adam killed his dad along with his older brother who was a law enforcement official. He then went to go kill his mom at the school where she teaches and she too was killed. Most of her students were the children that died. He then killed himself.

the info will eventually sort itself out. im seeing too many conflicting reports on which Lanza was the actual shooter.

Being a parent, hearing things like this makes me paranoid - and I'm already an overly protective father to begin with..

I may come off as this internet tough guy, but I'm really a softy. This is turning out to be one depressing day.

I refuse to watch the news or read about this as this is utterly disgusting. No trial, convict the scumbags and have them out for public torture by the families of the victims...or some other form of capital punishment. No counselling, no rehab, no jail...just death. Save the tax dollars and oxygen for more important needs

Another instance where gun control needs to be looked at and probably get rid of this shit of allowing people to own guns. I might be in the minority about that but this is ridiculous

The guy is dead and also they were his parents' guns I believe.
