Details Of Newtown Shootings ‘Too Difficult To Discuss’ Now, Police Say

As new pieces of information come in about Friday’s mass shooting at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn., we’ll post them here:

– Two people were shot and injured: Until this morning, it had been widely reported that one person was shot and injured. State Police Lt. J. Paul Vance told reporters this morning that “two adults” were shot and injured, and are recovering.

Vance did not make any changes in the story’s other key details: 20 children and six adults killed at the school; the gunman, Adam Lanza, found dead at the scene from a self-inflicted gunshot; and Lanza’s mother, Nancy, found dead at their home.

– Investigators may “hold” the school for months: Vance said both the school and the Lanza home are crime scenes that investigators will be “holding … indefinitely.” He suspects, Vance said, it could be months before investigators release their hold on the school.

– What investigators are learning is “too difficult to discuss” at this time: When reporters asked if Vance could offer any more details about what went on in the school after Lanza forced his way in, the State Police spokesman was blunt. It’s “too difficult to discuss” at this time, “I’m not going to lie to you,” he said. Investigators, he added, have a huge amount of information to process before more can be said. Every single round of ammunition, he pointed out, needs to be examined. [Copyright 2012 National Public Radio]
