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.
