Law enforcement officials have identified the man who walked into a Connecticut elementary school and shot innocent kindergarten children as the son of the kindergarten teacher.
Adam Lanza, 20-years-old, stormed into the Sandy Hook Elementary School's Principal's office wearing black military clothing, a bullet proof vest and carrying two hand guns. Once inside, he opened fire. Lanza then walked into his mother's classroom and proceeded to shot his mother, Nancy Lanza, before targeting children in her classroom. He then turned the gun on himself.
An earlier disagreement with his mother allegedly sparked the violent tragedy.
Law enforcement officials told CBS News that a Glock and a Sig Sauer, both semi-automatic pistols, were recovered from the school. A .223 rifle was found in the suspects car.
