Sandy Hook Elementary School Shooting
On Friday, December 14th, 2012, an event of horrific proportions took place at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut: More than two dozen people were reported to have been slain by a lone gunman inside of Sandy Hook Elementary School. Twenty of the victims are reported to have been children. The suspected shooter is said to be 20-year-old Adam Lanza, a shy and reclusive young man whom the media is reporting suffered from obsessive compulsive disorder, personality disorder as well as Asperger's Syndrome (autism). Adam was said to have been armed with as many as five weapons as well as a bullet-proof vest at the time when the murder took place. Reports have surfaced from local police in which we are told that after opening fire and killing dozens of people, Adam Lanza then turned one of those guns on himself in an apparent murder/suicide.
