CNN) -- Police released new documents related to the shootings last year at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut, but a motive for the attack by the troubled young man remained elusive.
Included in the information released Thursday is the report that a gun safe was found in the bedroom of 20-year-old Adam Lanza, who took guns belonging to his mother, Nancy, and shot her in her forehead in her bed. Then he went to the school in Newtown, where he gunned down 20 children and six staff members before killing himself.
Investigators found more than 1,600 rounds of ammunition in the house, and a holiday card with a check "made out to Adam Lanza for the purchase of a C183 (firearm), authored by Nancy Lanza," according to a search warrant.

"Call of Duty" is a computer-based war game.

Except the only information which matters: what medications he was taking.
That knowledge is apparently forbidden to us.
I’m pretty sure the ME never said none were through and through. Gotta source?
many remember that one and wondered what the heck ???
here is a professional individual with a son that has problems and can’t get anything done ?
all she had to do was call 911 if her son ever threatened her and get out of the way—the same for having firearms within his grasp—doesn’t make sense either.
He shot a group of 15 huddled children in one room. One thing they should learn from this is that group huddles (shelter in place) is a bad idea in active shooter situations.
The way I am reading this article indicates that the State’s Attorney said a 12 gauge shotgun was found in a “passenger compartment”
To me that means glove box. Could it mean the passenger seat or is there some other kind of compartment in that type of car..
It makes no sense
Can’t source but was a discussion point on FR bout three weeks after shooting.
Apparently, a C183 is also a camera.
Story says the gun safe was in Lanza’s room, but I remember reading that he pretty much lived in the basement. When the story first broke, there was no mention of whether or not the guns might have been secured or not. Since the safe was not broken into, he may have had the combo or was able to figure it out somehow. I’d like to know if it had a regular or electronic combo. A smart person could probably figure out the electronic combo w/o much difficulty.
A lightweight, jacketed .223 bullet at close range/high velocity will usually fragment.
Huddling isn’t a normal human response. Those kids were taught and told to do that. It is a wrong choice, because it just make them fish in a barrel.
All that means is that they found it in the car. The passenger compartment is the area where the seats are. They don’t specify what seat it was near.
Obviously a Saiga 12 and drum magazines aren’t going to fit in any glove box. Gotta wonder why a writer and editor wouldn’t realize that.
The reason I posted the bit about the police moving the shotgun to the trunk “for safety” is that in the video, you can see that the shotgun is loaded and ready to go. They remove a round from the chamber.
They apparently did not check it or unload it when they moved it.
Pretty sure that a major volcanic eruption is a really, really different scenario than an active school shooter. What is a normal response in once scenario doesn’t mean it would be a normal response in all other ones.
The people of Pompeii were suffocated in hot ash and would have been low to the ground looking for breathable air and possibly huddled together for comfort and prayer in the face of inescapable doom at the hands of the gods. No one to fight, no where to flee, so lay down and die together.
Soldiers under mortar fire often want to ...
a) stop moving
b) gather together.
Especially when they see someone get killed, and/or a mortar falls really close.
These are exactly the opposite of what people should do when under mortar fire. They should maintain distance and keep moving - hopefully to flank the bastards firing mortars at them.
I’ll test it(jacketed .223) on a carcass when I come across one and let you know what happens.
Well that puts to rest a lot of questions.
