A neighborhood plumber said in a published report this week that Newtown, Conn., gunman Adam Lanza spent his days in the basement of the house he shared with his mother, playing violent video games amid posters showcasing military equipment.
Along with the arduous task of going over crime scenes, police Saturday morning were trying to gain insight into the killer.
While authorities have still not officially identified the gunman who opened fire at Sandy Hook Elementary School, law enforcement sources have named him as 20-year-old Adam Lanza.
Police believe Peter Lanza’s home may yield clues into the unthinkable and appalling crime perpetuated by his 20-year-old son — the massacre of 27 people inside Sandy Hook Elementary School and the killing of his own mother inside her nearby home.
“We’re going to have to come together and take meaningful action to prevent more tragedies like this, regardless of the politics,” said President Barack Obama.
In the wake of the tragic school shooting in Newtown, Conn., CBS 2 has learned the school district had just installed a new safety policy designed to prevent situations such as what happened on Friday.
