Ryan Lanza @****_Lanza
alright. I didn't kill anyone. my name just happens to be Ryan Lanza...
also just heard a theory that classroom of kids was everything to the shooter's mother and that the shooter wanted to take everything she loved away from her.
If that's true, I think the government should strike his existence from history. He wanted attention. **** him. Make it so he never existed.
The media should be ****ing ashamed. First interviewing little kids who witnessed the tragedy right after it happened. Now they're throwing random names out there without properly vetting just so they can say they were the ones who got it first? Despicable. I hope they get their asses sued.
Have the found the GF and friend yet or is that whole situation twitter rumors at this point
fox just said adam was shooter, ryan his older bro was taken into custody, not confirmed
brother was in hoboken, nj so not sure what is going on with that
As usual the news in their rush to be first has ****ed up the reporting on this
WASHINGTON — Fox News and the New York Post are both reporting the shooter in the Connecticut elementary school shooting has been identified as Adam Lanza, 20.
Law enforcement initially said the shooter was 24-year-old Ryan Lanza, however Fox News said the shooter is Ryan Lanza’s brother, Adam Lanza.
At this hour, there are still conflicting reports of the exact identity of the shooter. The reason could stem from the possibility Adam Lanza was carrying Ryan Lanza’s ID.
RT @ethanklapper: WASHINGTON (AP) - Law officials: School shooting suspect is 20-year-old son of teacher; older brother questioned.
so can the older brother sue
Absolutely can not wrap my head around this. I can assure you I will stay up all night if I have to for the 3rd night in a row with my teething 8 month old daughter and never **** about it again. What the **** is wrong with people?
WTF Wolf? He asked the Lt "26 dead yet only 1 injured. What does that tell you?"
Okay - we can't totally isolate malls, schools, movie theaters, etc. so what can we do to deter these ****ing attention-starved chicken shits from shooting up a public place?
I have a couple ideas but they'd never fly, of course.
The man identified in media reports Friday as the shooter has told friends that he thinks his developmentally disabled brother may have committed the crime, Patch has learned. A close friend of Ryan Lanza who would not be identified told Patch that he spoke to Lanza as Lanza made his way home from work to Hoboken. Lanza also took to his Facebook page to rail against CNN naming him as the suspect in the shooting in Newtown, Conn.
“I’m on the bus home now, it wasn’t me,” Lanza wrote.
Lanza’s mother, Nancy, a school teacher, is believed to be among the dead.
Patch was among the media outlets to highlight and link to reports naming Ryan Lanza as the alleged shooter. Police haven't yet officially confirmed the identity of the gunman.
The suspect in the Connecticut school shootings is Adam Lanza, 20, the son of a teacher at the school where the shootings occurred, a law enforcement official said Friday. A second law enforcement official says the boy's mother, Nancy Lanza, is presumed dead.
Adam Lanza's older brother, Ryan, 24, of Hoboken, N.J., is being questioned by police, said the first official. Earlier, a law enforcement official mistakenly transposed the brothers' first names.
Both officials spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak on the record about the developing criminal investigation.
The first official said Adam Lanza is dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
According to the second official, the suspect drove to the scene of the shootings in his mother's car. Three guns were found at the scene — a Glock and a Sig Sauer, both pistols — and a .223-caliber rifle. The rifle was recovered from the back of a car at the school. The two pistols were recovered from inside the school.
The official also said Lanza's girlfriend and another friend are missing in New Jersey.
Meanwhile, former Jersey Journal staff writer Brett Wilshe said he has spoken with Ryan Lanza of Hoboken, who told Wilshe the shooter may have had Ryan Lanza's identification.
Ryan Lanza has a Facebook page that posted updates Friday afternoon that read that "it wasn't me" and "I was at work."

As a society, we're polarized to the point where kindergartners can be slaughtered, and our first thoughts are of our politics. Our politics are our religion, and the **** if we aren't more like the Taliban everyday in our practice of it.
