A law enforcement official said 20-year-old Sandy Hook Elementary School shooter Adam Lanza used guns registered to his mother to commit the massacre on Friday.
Lanza killed his mother, 54-year-old Nancy Lanza, at her home, before taking the lives of 20 children and 6 adults at the school in Newtown, Connecticut.
The Associated Press reports that the official said “a Glock and a Sig Sauer, both pistols, and a .223-caliber Bushmaster rifle were found in the school after the massacre Friday.”
Nancy Lanza reportedly was a “big gun fan,” according to the New York Times.
“She had several different guns,” said an acquaintance of Nancy Lanza. “She would go target shooting with her kids.”
