Connecticut Officials Release Report On Sandy Hook Massacre

 

Bing – Inside Sandy hook Elementary School, Dec. 14, 2012

A report on the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre indicates that nearly six minutes passed between the arrival of the first Newtown police officer and the time local officers entered the school.
 
    A timeline released with the report Monday says the first officer arrived behind the school at 9:39 a.m. after the shooting was reported. Two other Newtown officers then arrived at the school, and gunshots were heard in the background.
 
    The last gunshot officers heard, which is believed to be the suicide shot by gunman Adam Lanza, was heard at three seconds past 9:40.
 
    The report says Newtown officers entered the school at 47 seconds past 9:44.
 
    Prosecutor Stephen Sedensky III wrote in the report that law enforcement officers were operating under the belief there may have been more than one shooter.

_ The report also stated the gunman had an obsession with mass murders but that investigators did not discover any evidence he had indicated to others an intention to carry out such a crime.
 
  Sedensky says Adam Lanza was obsessed in particular with the April 1999 shootings at Columbine High School in Colorado.
 
    The report on the Dec. 14 massacre of 20 children and six adults says the question of Lanza’s motive may never be answered conclusively.
 
    Lanza killed his mother inside their Newtown home before driving to Sandy Hook Elementary School and carrying out his rampage. He committed suicide as police arrived.  (Associated Press)
