Another law enforcement official told the AP that the shooter’s mother, Nancy Lanza, a teacher at Sandy Hook Elementary School where much of the carnage happened, is presumed dead.

Lanza’s older brother, Ryan, 24, of Hoboken, N.J., is currently being questioned by police, the AP’s sources report. Ryan had originally been identified as the shooter, but that turned out to be incorrect.

Adam Lanza, age 2o, has been identified as the shooter at the Connecticut elementary school which left over two dozen people dead, 18 of them were children.

Lanza’s mother was a kindergarten teacher at the Sandy Hook Elementary School. Lanza’s body is in a kindergarten classroom with 4 total guns.

According to CBS News, the gunman got into an argument with people at the front office, possibly the principal, at about 9:30 a.m. People have to be buzzed in before entering the school and there is a camera to view whoever is entering the building.

According to several reports, Lanza was living in Hoboken, N.J., and killed his mother before coming to the school to kill the other victims.
