Sandy Hook shooter Adam Lanza opened fire at specific cars in the school parking lot before the devastating Dec. 14 massacre. Could he have been targeting specific teachers in the attack?

As police continue to examine evidence in the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting that killed 26 people on Dec. 14, more questions surface if shooter Adam Lanza was targeting one of the teachers he killed in the devastating massacre.

Police are investigating several cars in the parking lot that were reportedly shot by Adam before he barged into the school to open fire on more than two dozen faculty and students.

One of the cars reportedly belonged to Lauren Rosseau, 30, a permanent substitute teacher at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Lauren’s classroom was the second room Adam attacked in his shooting rampage after first killing the school principal and psychologist in the front office.

When Adam barged into Lauren’s class, he shot her in the face and then killed 15 out of her 16 students.

Finding Adam Lanza’s Motive In Sandy Hook Shooting

Although a motive for the school shooting is unclear, Adam Lanza’s DNA is reportedly being examined by a team of geneticists at U Conn to determine what drove the 20-year-old recluse to murder 26 people before turning the gun on himself.

The department of genetics will be working hand-in-hand with the state’s Chief Medical Examiner during the study, which will investigate whether a genetic mutation was responsible for triggering Adam’s actions that day, according to TMZ.

A representative for the medical examiner’s office says that they are not really sure what they are looking for. Results aren’t expected for several weeks.

Anybody who unequivocally believes that Adam Lanza solely committed these crimes IS either DELUSIONAL and/or GULLIBLE.

Dear Author, keep digging for that motive. It makes sense to dismiss his aspergers making his ability to plan impossible. Maybe had his mother and full time care giver not done exactly what you are doing in this article which is ignore the fact that this person had a neurological disorder and mental illness those kids would not be dead.

All children must be included.There needs to be since there is lack of common sense in thus world, a No child Left Behind POLICY PERIOD.there’s the anti- gun policy right there, the end to school violence.Include every child, promote anti-cliques.Single Parenthood can be especially devastating, when the children from that single parent are ostracized, seems like taboo, but look what it can do to the child, friendless because society shuts the single parents out I am not saying what Adam did was excusable, but why did his father abandon his own son?Children cannot function healthy without friends.

Gotta be either environment or genetic inheritance, right? No such thing as freedom of choice? No such thing as good and evil? And they call Christians “gullible.”

I don’t think she Billy Bean ever claimed to be a Christian. It appears to be used as a comparison, to contrast the two popular, yet imperfect ideologies. But lets be constructive with our criticism, and go with your response……

DNA cannot tell “why” somebody is violent because EVERYBODY HAS “FREE WILL”. All people have a propensity to be violent and evil but we ALL make a choice to do evil or to do good. WE HAVE “FREE WILL”. All people have a basic evil instinct and in Christianity it is called “original sin”. It’s a propensity to be bad. We have to overcome our basic instinct and then we can do “good”.

It is the drugs that are the cause of this psychotic attack. Who was his doctor. Who was his mother begging to have him committed for treatment. We the people have a need to know in order to prevent this from happening again. We need to see the signs to see something and say something.

This is the first time I have seen this question asked – Where is the doctor? What was he taking?

I do believe many people experience a reaction to medication under the watch of a full time care giver like Adam Lanza had. Most will never kill their full time caregiver and go shoot up a school. The reason why? THEY HAVE A FULL TIME CAREGIVER!
