At a press briefing Saturday, Connecticut medical examiner Dr. H. Wayne Carver said the 20 children and six adult women killed in Friday’s shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary school were all shot with a .233-caliber Bushmaster AR-15 semi-automatic rifle. Witnesses report that as many as 100 shots were fired. The shooter, Adam Lanza, was carrying several 30-round magazines.
It was initially reported that the name of the suspect in this morning’s Newtown, Conn., school shooting was Ryan Lanza. Now it has been reported that the shooter’s name is Adam Lanza, not Ryan Lanza, and that the two are brothers. CBS reports that Adam, 20, was dead at the scene, and Ryan, 24, has been taken into custody for questioning.
