OMG.... the Newton, Connecticut school shooter lived in Hoboken.
NEWTOWN, CT - CNN has reported the name of the suspected shooter at a Connecticut elementary school Friday.

The suspected gunman has been identified as Ryan Lanza, a  law enforcement source told CNN.
ABC News reported that he was 24 years old.

He died at the scene.

The shooting took place at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.

A law enforcement official in Washington said the attacker had ties to the school and that one of the guns was a .223-caliber rifle.

Authorities say 27 people were killed, including 18 children

The now-deceased killer lived on upper Grand Street.  Police have closed off the street. A friend sent this:
I saw the police cars racing over there at 1pm when I was picking up (child's name redacted)  at wallace
It's reported his brother is in custody.  The street is closed off.

It looks like Facebook pulled Lanza's page down.

'It Wasn't Me' Hoboken Man Named as Shooter Writes

The man identified in media reports Friday as the shooter in the second deadliest school shooting in American history 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 requested to not be identified told Patch that he spoke to Lanza as he was making 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. More than 30 individuals, including 18 students, are believed to have died in the mass shooting
. What the hell is going on?  I just got this:
supposedly.... Adam Lanza used his brother's id and is the shooter and Ryan is in Hoboken police custody??

It looks like CNN effed up big time- in the rush to report the story, mis-identified the killer and compounded the young man's misery.  It was his BROTHER.

He's lost his mother and brother and has to live with his brother's mass murder of 20 children and  6 adults- the worst school shooting in American history.

It is horrible, horrible.

Now I will just think about those kids, ages 5-10, that won't get a chance to grow up and live a full like, and know love and create their own families.... and all of the families of those murdered- and Ryan Lanza.
