The man identified in media reports Friday as the shooter in the 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 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.
The Associated Press is reporting 27 people dead including 18 children at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
The shooter is believed to be a single adult and is now dead.
