Newtown gunman spent more than 150 rounds, killed victims within 5 minutes



Fox News

In less than five minutes, a gunman shot his way into Sandy Hook Elementary School and killed 26 people inside, then took his own life, leaving more than 150 spent rounds in his wake, according to documents released Thursday.

Danbury State’s Attorney Stephen Sedensky says Adam Lanza killed 20 first-graders and six adults using a Bushmaster .223-caliber rifle before taking his own life with a Glock 10-mm. handgun. Sedensky says Lanza had another loaded handgun with him inside the school, as well as three, 30-round magazines for the Bushmaster.

The documents say Lanza was found dead in the school wearing a bulletproof vest and military-style clothing, according to the Associated Press.

A loaded 12-gauge shotgun was found in the glove compartment of the Honda Civic Lanza drove to the school with two magazines containing 70 rounds of Winchester 12-gauge shotgun rounds.

An arsenal of weapons, including guns, more than 1,000 rounds of ammunition, Samurai swords, knives and a bayonet were found in Lanza’s Connecticut home following the Dec. 14, 2012,  massacre, according to search warrants.

Investigators also found a gun safe belonging to the shooter’s mother, Nancy Lanza. There was no evidence the safe had been broken into, according to CTnow.com. Lanza shot and killed his mother prior to the shooting rampage at the school, police said.

The extensive inventory of the evidence seized from Lanza’s home and the car he drove to carry out the massacre provided glimpses into the world of the reclusive gunman. Prosecutors until now had made few details available, despite pressure to do so from the governor, who criticized leaks to the press and lawmakers who clamored for more details as they craft legislation on mental health and gun control.

At the house, investigators found books about autism and Asperger’s syndrome as well as an NRA guide to pistol shooting.

Police said they found a smashed computer hard drive, a gaming console and a gun safe in Lanza’s bedroom. An unnamed source told investigators that Lanza was an avid gamer who played “Call of Duty” and other games and rarely left his home.

Investigators found articles on other shootings and a holiday card containing a check made out to Adam Lanza for the purchase of a firearm, authored by his mother, Nancy Lanza.

Police also found three photographs of an unidentified dead person covered in plastic and blood, according to CTnow.com.

Documents indicate authorities found a brown gun safe with shotgun shells and numerous boxes of bullets. In a bedroom closet, they found ear plugs, a handwritten note regarding ammunition and magazines, paperwork on guns and a metal bayonet.

In a top drawer of a filing cabinet, they found paper targets. In a duffel bag, they found ear and eye protection, binoculars, numerous paper targets and Lanza’s NRA certificate.

The search warrants released Thursday made no mention of a massive spreadsheet Lanza reportedly compiled containing extensive research on previous mass murders.

A Danbury Superior Court judge on Wednesday granted a request by Sedensky, the prosecutor overseeing the investigation, to withhold some details. Sedensky asked to redact the name of a witness, saying the person’s safety might be jeopardized if the name were disclosed. He also asked that the release not include other information such as telephone numbers, serial numbers on items found and a few paragraphs of an affidavit.

Authorities have said it will take until June or later for the investigation to be completed.

Senate President Donald E. Williams Jr. said this week that legislative leaders hope to review the search warrant documents before finishing work on a bipartisan bill that addresses gun control and other issues related to the massacre.

  1. It took this long to come up with a plausible story to cover up the facts the media reported at first. They need to get quicker writer’s with a better imagination!

  2. From the report:
    “A loaded 12-gauge shotgun was found in the glove compartment of the Honda Civic Lanza drove to the school with two magazines containing 70 rounds of Winchester 12-gauge shotgun rounds.”

    This just proves how much of a false flag it was!
    Or, I want one of these NON-EXISTANT shotguns for myself!
    Ahhhhh, I love the smell of fear emanating from the elite! It’s the most seductive perfume I know of.

  3. “In less than five minutes, a gunman shot his way into Sandy Hook Elementary School and killed 26 people inside, then took his own life, leaving more than 150 spent rounds in his wake, according to documents released Thursday.”

    “Danbury State’s Attorney Stephen Sedensky says Adam Lanza killed 20 first-graders and six adults using a Bushmaster .223-caliber rifle before taking his own life with a Glock 10-mm. handgun. Sedensky says Lanza had another loaded handgun with him inside the school, as well as three, 30-round magazines for the Bushmaster.”

    So, let me see if I’ve got this straight.

    He fired 150 rounds with the Bushmaster, but ONLY had three 30 round magazines.

    In LESS than 5 minutes.

    So he emptied all three magazines, reloaded two of them, and emptied BOTH of them, all in LESS than 5 minutes?

    Ooooooookaaaay.

    And these people CLAIM to be intelligent?

    1. Ain’t that something? I know what their real problem is! They can’t find anyone familiar with guns to write their crap. And they get away with it because the sheep don’t know any better. The more outrageous the lie, the more they think they can fool everyone. Don’t bother with accuracy of information or integrity (They have none) in journalism.
      It’s all Hollywood now.
      WELCOME TO PEEWEE’S CIRCUS!

    2. The fact they haven’t fooled some of the people just doesn’t matter. Everytime Adam Lanza is mentioned I think of Martin Bryant who had an IQ of 66. Just a reminder of how ‘talented’ these ‘shooters’ are I repost this.

      The gunman rose from his chair at one of the tables in the Broad Arrow Cafe,removed the AR15 and spare magazine from a sports bag, immediately killing Mr Yee Ng with a shot to the upper neck, and Miss Chung with a shot to the head.
      Swiveling on the spot and firing from the right hip, the gunman fired at Mr Sargent who was wounded in the head, then killed Miss Scott with a shot to the head. The gunman continued through the Broad Arrow, next killing Mr Nightingale with a shot to the upper neck and Mr Bennet with a shot to the upper neck, with the latter bullet passing straight through and hitting Mr Ray Sharpe in the head with fatal results. Next Mr Kevin Sharpe was killed by a shot to the head and was also hit in the arm, with shrapnel and bone fragments from the second intermediate strike on Mr Kevin Sharpe then apparently wounding Mr Broome, and possibly Mr and Mrs Fidler.
      Still firing from the hip the gunman swiveled and killed Mr Mills and Mr Kistan with single shots to the head, with shrapnel and skull fragments from those shots apparently wounding Mrs Walker, Mrs Law, and Mrs Barker. Again the gunman turned, shooting and wounding Mr Colyer in the neck, before swivelling and killing Mr Howard with a shot to the head. Next he shot Mrs Howard in the neck and head with fatal effect. The gunman turned back, killing Miss Loughton with a shot to the head, and wounding Mrs Loughton in the back. Moving towards the rear of the building the gunman shot Mr Elliot in the head, causing serious injuries.
      ELAPSED TIME 15 SECONDS…
      The above sequence is the best the forensic scientists could deduce from the crime scene and there may be small variations, but in the final analysis they matter little. What does matter is that at this precise juncture the gunman had killed twelve victims and wounded a further ten in 15 seconds flat, using only 17 rounds fired from the right hip.

      1. Again, and the people who report this b.s. not only consider themselves intelligent, but expect us to do likewise?

        This speaks volumes concerning the average intelligence of the sheeple these days.

    3. I’m absolutely speechless, #1. I really am. These lies are completely off the wall. He must have been shooting in the same place and all in one direction like a possessed robot. And even then, I don’t think he would be able to shoot that many rounds in 5 minutes and even then I would think someone would have tackled him from behind by then.

      Don’t worry though, guys. I hear next week, their story will change to Adam Lanza dressed up as the Easter Bunny, carried a Saiga and a rocket launcher with 200 rounds of Chocolate covered bullets along with a Bushmaster shotgun with 200 rounds of jellybeans and an AR-15 with 300 rounds of chocolate covered eggs, as well as a broken Tai Chi sword made in China, and the motive was because the students stole his Easter baskets.
