Report: Shooter was teacher’s son

NBC News has confirmed the identity the shooter at the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre as Ryan Lanza, 24, of New Jersey, and that his mother, a teacher at the school, is one of the victims.

An additional report from NBC says Lanza shot and killed his father in Hoboken, N.J.

More than two dozen people, who were mostly children, were shot and killed Friday morning at the Newtown elementary school. In addition, a dead body, reported to be Lanza’s mother, has been found at a home in Newtown.
