Gunman Identified In Connecticut School Shooting

Police have identified the shooter in the shooting massacre that left a total of 29 dead, including his mom. Apparently, authorities are unsure of the the name and age of the shooter because, the teacher had two sons.  The gunman has been named Adam Lanza, 20 years old, the older brother Ryan Lanza. As this tragedy unfolds, details are becoming more and more hanious. The gunman is said to have been suffering from some type of mental illness; which should be evident by now. My heart goes out to those innocent little kids who lost their lives in the wake of this massacre; as well as their loved ones, who are left to mourn the loss of their babies. The mere thought of this incident brings me to tears. Here is the latest update as I've read it.

According to NBC,

The gunman in the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown has been identified as Adam Lanza. He is also dead, officials said. A senior law enforcement official tells NBC New York that an unidentified woman has also been found dead, shot in the face, at a Newtown home, bringing the death toll to 28.
State police said the shooting was confined to two rooms at the school, and that the casualties included 20 children and six adults. Two guns were recovered inside the school, the state official said. 
"Our hearts are broken today," President Obama said at the White House, choking up as he described how the slain children "had their entire lives ahead of them."
