This is the work of a monster. A real life monster.
The gunman is believed to be 20-year-old Adam Lanza. Authorities previously reported the shooter was Ryan Lanza, Adam's 24-year-old brother.
New reports suggest Ryan is currently being questioned by police in New Jersey.
Connecticut State Police Lt. Paul Vance has confirmed that 20 of the 26 victims of Sandy Hook Elementary school shooting were children between the ages of 5 and 6-years-old.
The shooting took place in one section of the school and in 2 classrooms in the school — one of which was classroom where the suspected gunman's mother, Nancy Lanza, taught kindergarden.
Lt. Vance told reporters that 18 children died at school and 2 in transit to hospital.
6 adults, and the gunman himself, have been confirmed dead.
We're all trying wrap our minds around how someone could be so incredibly sinister. This is truly, truly horrific.
Again, our hearts and thoughts go out to the family's of those young victims.
