Peter Lanza, the father of 20-year-old Adam Lanza, who executed his mother in their home and then murdered 26 people at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut before killing himself, issued a statement on Saturday Dec. 15.
Ana Marquez-Greene, 7, Jesse Lewis, 6, Grace McDonnell, 6, and Emilie Parker, 6, were just a small number of the victims who were killed by Adam Lanza, 20, on Dec. 14 at Sandy Hook Elementary School. While we already revealed a number of details about those victims, it’s now being reported that the children were shot up to 11 times during their slayings.
Victoria Soto, 27, Ana Marquez-Greene, 7, Jesse Lewis, 6, and Grace McDonnell, 6, were just a small number of the victims who were killed by Adam Lanza on Dec. 14 at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Earlier, we revealed a number of details about the victims of the Connecticut shooting, and now, a full list of those who died on Dec. 14 has been released.
A young teacher, Victoria Soto, saved as many of her first grade students as she could on Friday Dec. 14 when she threw her body in front of masked gunman Adam Lanza. The 27-year-old teacher died after getting shot.
As if this horrific story could not get any worse, it appears as though Adam Lanza, 20, returned to Sandy Hook Elementary School on Friday Dec. 14 to finish what he started the day before, however, this time, he planned to kill the four teachers he had an argument with one day prior. Three were shot dead, one wasn’t at the school on Dec. 14.
Adam Lanza’s brother, Ryan Lanza, 24, who was originally identified as the gunman, describes his brother as having a personality disorder. Others suggest he had a history of autistic behavior. Either way, Adam’s path lead him to kill his mother Nancy Lanza, a kindergarten teacher, in the home they share, steal her guns, and then drove to Sandy Hook Elementary School at approximately 9:30 AM, where he killed 26 people.
